Cabinet convenes regular meeting for April
VGP - Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh presided the Cabinet meeting on Friday to review socio-economic situation in April and the first four months of 2023.
In the January-April period, the Prime Minister convened nearly 600 meetings, and issued 16 decrees, 75 resolutions, 25 public telegrams and 11 directives to perfect regulations, support business activities and ensure macro-economic stability and major balances.
Prime Minister Pham said that despite numerous difficulties and challenges, the country has attained major targets, notably, macro-economy has been basically stable and inflation has been kept under control.
CPI saw a month-on-month decline of 0.34 percent, nearly one million foreign arrivals came to Viet Nam, up 9.9 percent, and Viet Nam ran a trade surplus of US$ 1.51 billion.
International organizations like IMF, WB, and OECD continued to forecast a positive growth outlook for the Vietnamese economy this year, he added.
However, the economy suffered impacts of external factors, including high inflation in the world, global growth slowdown, and unpredictable changes in the international situation.
In Viet Nam, there remained a number of challenges to macro-economic stability while the corporate bond and real estate markets still faced latent problems, the Government leader pointed out.
It is necessary to stay calm and objective in assessing the situation, show stronger determination, make greater efforts, respond more quickly and effectively, and take appropriate solutions to step up works in the coming months.
At the meeting, the Cabinet also discussed the implementation of the socio-economic recovery and development program, the public investment disbursement, and the three national target programs./.
