The State Bank of Vietnam (SBV) cut policy rate by 50bps in response to Covid-19. In particular, the discount rate and refinance rate stay at 4.5% (down from 5%) and 3% (down from 3.5%) respectively. In our opinion, the rate cut provides more liquidity and low-cost fund to bank system.  However, the impact will be small as 1) borrowing from the central bank source accounts for very only 0.2%-0.5% of total banks’ liabilities and 2) most banks, especially on small private banks, mobilizing deposits on 6-month above to avoid deposit rates cap by SBV.
