Vinashin-SBIC unsure how to handle 73 subsidiaries

SBIC is still bogged down in difficulties that it has experienced over the last six years, since the day Vinashin (the Vietnam Shipbuilding Industry Group), the forerunner of SBIC, collapsed.

It is still unclear about the fate of its 73 subsidiaries. SBIC has requested the State Capital Investment Corporation (SCIC) to take over the companies, so as to help SBIC ease the burden on its shoulders.

Steel ship building project enjoys strong results

The first steel fishing vessels built under a Government pilot project have helped fishermen enjoy bumper catches by staying longer in Vietnam’s offshore fishing grounds.

The Shipbuilding Industry Corporation (SBIC) was tasked with building steel vessels to replace tens of thousands of wooden boats nationwide, promoting offshore catch quality and the safety of fishermen.

Banks benefit from special debt settlement for Vinashin

Commercial banks have been allowed to keep Vinashin’s bad debts in “pending” status and do not have to declare the debt as bad debt on their financial reports.


They can also make provisions against risks in accordance with their financial capabilities.

In its golden age, Vinashin, a once-leading group in shipbuilding (an industry that Vietnam had once targeted as a priority for development) was a VIP client of many commercial banks.
