In 2022, the global and local conditions became increasingly complicated than forecasts; economic difficulties and challenges mounted, creating significant pressure on macro-economic management and administration, greatly affecting the recovery and development of many industries, fields and people's lives. Continuing to inherit and promote the great historic achievements over more than 35 years of renovation and comprehensive results from the beginning of the term until now; under the leadership of the Party, the effective and efficient management of the State; with the drastic engagement of the whole political system, the joint effort and consensus of the business community and people nationwide; along with the support and help of international friends, our country's socio-economic situation continued to record positive recovery trend and achieved important results, reaching or exceeding 13 out of 15 targets set out in the socio-economic development plan. In which the macro-economic conditions were reltatively stable, inflation was kept under control, economic growth were picked up, major balances were secured. Various solutions were promptly implemented to extend and reduce a number of taxes, fees, charges and land rents to remove difficulties for production and business. Regular tasks were effectively carried out, and at the same time attention was paid to addressing long-standing issues and promptly solving and responding to newly arising problems. Some initial positive results had been achieved. The average consumer price index (CPI) for the whole year only increased by 3.15% year-on-year. GDP growth was estimated at 8.02%, GDP was valued at about US$409 billion. State budget revenue was expected to exceed 27.76% of the estimate, 14.12% increase compared to 2021. Total investment capital of the whole society was estimated to grow by 11.2%. Export turnover was estimated at US$371.39 billion, up 10.6%. The economy recorded an estimated trade surplus of US$11.2 billion. Price management, especially for essential commodities such as gasoline, oil, and textbooks, was strongly, closely and effectively directed with due attention. The balances between supply and demand of electricity, gasoline and food were guaranteed. Local shortage of gasoline and oil was basically addressed. In principle, labor supply was sufficient to meet the market demand. National defense and security had been consolidated and strengthened. Social order and safety, independence and sovereignty were maintained. Foreign affairs and international integration achieved many positive results. The prestige and position of our country continued to be enhanced. The investment and business environment witnessed positive changes. The fields of culture, society, labor and employment achieved many important results. The epidemic was put under control, contributing to reinforcing socio-economic stability and improving the people's lives. Viet Nam continued to be an attractive investment destination, recognized as a dynamic economy, and received rankings by many international organizations in 2022.
2023 marked the mid-point between a term of the Party, which plays an important role in the implementation of the Resolutions of the 13th National Party Congress and the Resolution of the National Assembly on the 5-year socio-economic development plan for 2021 - 2025. The world situation shall continue to evolve in a complex, fast, and unpredictable manner. Strategic competition with big countries, economic competition, and trade war could escalate. The military conflict in Ukraine could last longer. It could take many years to overcome consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic. Inflation could continue to stay high, the trend of monetary policy tightening and increase in interest rates could persist in many countries. The risks to liquidity, financial stability, currency, public debt, real estate, energy security, food security, information security might rise globally. The global economic growth would have tendency to slow down, some countries would show signs of economic recession. Domestically, economic opportunities, advantages and difficulties, challenges would be intertwined but difficulties and challenges might prevail. Inflation pressure, exchange rate, interest rate could soar; production and business could continue to face many challenges; Viet Nam's traditional large import and export markets could be narrowed. It should be noted that the shortcomings, limitations, and inadequacies of the economy in terms of economic structure, domestic production capacity, accumulated financial, monetary, and real estate markets had not been resolved for a long time; the scale of our country's economy was still modest while its openness had increased recently, its competitiveness and resistance to shocks from overseas ports was still limited. Various unexpected high-risk factors still existed and could be difficult to predict. Epidemics, climate change, natural disasters, droughts, storms and floods would continue to develop abnormally, causing more severe impacts.
