As of the end of last year, the total outstanding loans for real estate projects in Vietnam hit over VND1,200 trillion (US$51.5 billion), according to the Ministry of Construction.

Property enterprises borrowed some VND800 trillion ($34.1 billion) from banks and issued bonds worth roughly VND419 trillion ($17.9 billion) via private placement.

In particular, banks offered loans worth about VND180.7 trillion ($7.7 billion) for urban area and housing projects in 2022, or 22.8 percent of the total loans for the real estate sector.

In addition, loans for office for lease projects and industrial and export processing zones stood at more than VND41.8 trillion ($1.8 billion) and VND40.1 trillion ($1.7 billion), respectively.
