Vietnam’s GDP rose 7.72 percent year-on-year in Q2, the highest since 2011, driven by a strong rebound in manufacturing as the economy recovers from two years of Covid-19.

The growth rate helps bring Vietnam’s economic growth in the first six months to 6.42 percent, the highest in three years. Last year, the first-half expansion rate was 5.74 percent.
