The DIV has been a single and important Government financial institution in deposit insurance.

Mr. Nguyen Quang Huy expected that the graduates would start their career with sufficent knowledge of the DIV and deposit insurance, thus cooperate with DIV to promote DI policy in daily life.  “This event is held today in a frank and open manner.
