 Tuesday, October 22,2019

AsemconnectVietnam - Vietnam's gross domestic product (GDP) growth is expected to exceed 6.8% this year, backed by robust exports and foreign investment, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc said.

The country is targeting a GDP growth of 6.8% and will keep inflation below 4% next year, Phuc said at a meeting of the National Assembly, the country's lawmaking body.
Vietnam's foreign exchange reserves have reached $73 billion, a record high, he added.

Phuc said, however, that Vietnam has an open economy and is exposed to external risks.
The country's pace of privatisation of state-owned enterprises and pace of budget spending on infrastructure have been slower than expected, Phuc also said.
