ECONOMIC NEWS

The number of resumed and newly-established firms reached 149,451 in the first eight months of 2022, accounted for 31.1 percent of the current time, according to the Business Registration Management Agency under the Ministry of Planning and Investment.

Specifically, 48,126 firms returned to the market during the January-August period, which is equivalent to 48.3 percent year on year.

In August, 11,918 firms were established with the total registered capital up to VND 130.198 billion, increased 106.9 percent in number and 91.6 percent in value compared to the same period last year.

According to General Statistics Office, Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) disbursement was estimated at US$12.8 billion in January-August, a year-on-year of 10.5 percent.

The World Bank on Monday forecasts that Viet Nam’s GDP would accelerate up to 7.5 percent in 2022 starting from 2.6 percent last year.

The economy expanded 5.2 percent in the fourth quarter last year, 5.1 percent in the first quarter this year, and 7.7 percent in the later quarter.

However, this positive outlook depends on increasing risks, including decelerating growth and stagflation in Viet Nam’s major export markets, global commodity price hikes, and global supply chain disruptions.
