The deposit rate cuts came at the bank system’s peak season of payments on the occasion of the Lunar New Year holiday. Notably, the highest deposit rates at some major banks are a mere 6.8%-6.9%.

However, many small banks which hold low share proportions of the local market are offering the highest deposit rates of 8.5%-8.7% for longer terms if deposits are big enough.
