Vietnam Dong Black Market Rate Gains, Narrowing Gap (Update2)

By Patricia Lui and Jason Folkmanis


















July 8 (Bloomberg) -- The Vietnamese dong rate in the black
market has strengthened towards the official level after the
government released more dollars into the economy and cracked
down on state banks' currency transactions.
The dong, allowed to trade 2 percent either side of a daily
reference rate set by the central bank, traded at 16,849.50 per
dollar at 4:15 p.m. in Hanoi. The black market rate is now about
2 percent away from the allowable range, according to JPMorgan
Chase & Co. The gap was as wide as 10 percent in June.
