Abstract

Banking is the core of the financial system which has important role in attracting deposits to provide credits to borrowers, services to customers and booting the economic development. This paper applied a modified DEA window analysis to analyze the performance changes through time of the Vietnamese banking system in the 1990-2010 periods. The research suggests that this performance is decreasing through the time as the size of the banking sector increases; financial market is more liberate, and when the World and regional economies are problematic. While the banking system is running at two-third of its capacity, it has limited contribution to the economy. Therefore, continuing to develop and restructuring the banking system in Vietnam is important now and then. Using tighten monetary and/or loosen fiscal policy can be seen as a solution for improving the performance of the Vietnamese banking system.
