Reporting Vietnam’s economic performance 2022 and orientations to 2023, Minister of Planning and Investment Nguyen Chi Dung said with Covid-19 under control, Vietnam’s inflation stood at 3.02% in January-November and is below 4% for the whole of this year. Industrial production went up 8.6% during the period while the total retail of goods and services rose by 20.5%. The total number of newly-established firms surged by 33.2% annually to 195,000. The foreign direct investment hit a five-year record to 19.68 billion USD, up 15.1%.

Apart from achievements in social welfare, anti-corruption, national defence-security, external affairs and global integration, delegates raised concern over inflation pressure due to external uncertainties, low labour productivity, slow disbursement of public investment capital; risks in securities, corporate bond and real estate markets; high input costs and shortage of materials, among others.

Dung said next year, Vietnam will encounter difficulties and challenges in meeting development goals amid fluctuations in the world. Hence, it requires not only the unanimity, efforts and determination of the entire political system, people and businesses to perform tasks but also support from the global community, governments, international organisations, scientists and experts at home and abroad.
