HANOI -- Vietnam's government on Wednesday raised VND3.85 trillion ($156.63 million) selling bonds at an auction at the Hanoi Stock Exchange, the bourse said in a filing.

The State Treasury sold VND350 billion worth of 5-year bonds at the auction for a yield of 1.64%, the exchange said.

It also sold VND2 trillion of 10-year bonds and VND1.5 trillion of 15-year bonds at yields of 2.45% and 2.68%, respectively.
