Ministry envisages two scenarios for Viet Nam’s 2022 GDP growth
VGP - Viet Nam's GDP growth may reach 8 percent for 2022 in the best-case scenario, according to the Ministry of Planning and Investment.
Meanwhile, in another scenario, as the nation has to face unpredicted difficulties and obstacles, the economy may expand 7.5 percent for the whole year.
Viet Nam's GDP accelerated to 8.83 percent growth in the first nine months this year, the highest rate over the same period since 2021, the General Statistics Office reported last week.
The economy expanded 13.76 percent in the third quarter compared to 7.72 percent in the second quarter and 5.05 percent in the first quarter.
