On Saturday, HDBank will host a live streaming session at the booth to assist customers with opening bank accounts.

The HDBank booth also features special offers, presenting lucky money worth VND100,000 (US$4) to each new account holder via the HDBank app, in addition to many other presents such as backpacks, raincoats, umbrellas, and thermal bottles.

Stopping by the booth run by Nam A Commercial Joint Stock Bank (Nam A Bank), visitors will be briefed on the lender’s products, services, and technology, as well as take part in interactive mini games with a wide selection of cool gifts.

Tien Phong Commercial Joint Stock Bank (TPBank) offers a cashless payment experience via its mobile app and the TPBank Visa Flash2in1 card, which integrates credit cards and ATM cards in the same chip.
