The US dollar rose against the Vietnamese dong on Wednesday morning.
Vietcombank sold the dollar at 24,560 VND, up 0.04% from Tuesday.
The State Bank of Vietnam kept its reference rate unchanged at VND24,085.
The dollar remained stable at 24,550 VND on the black market.
It has risen against the dong by 3.50% since the start of the year.
Globally, the dollar climbed following upbeat data Tuesday showing U.S. job openings rose unexpectedly in August amid rising demand for service-sector workers professionals and businesses. Reuters reported.
That sent the greenback to a near 11-month high of 107.34 against a basket of currencies, with the dollar index last at 107.07.
Sterling edged down 0.03% to $1.20745, languishing near the previous session’s seven-month low near $1.20535.
