Fiscal Balance in Vietnam

Vietnam Fiscal Balance | Economic News & Forecasts

Vietnam - Fiscal Balance

The economy appeared to perform well at the outset of the second quarter. In April, the manufacturing PMI increased on a recovery in employment, while industrial production growth rose. Moreover, exports expanded robustly year-on-year in the same month, despite external trade headwinds, and retail sales surged, likely supported by mild price pressures. In the first four months of the year, FDI was up markedly, potentially driven in part by firms diverting production away from China amid the prolonged U.S.-China trade dispute. This comes after economic momentum ebbed in the first quarter of the year, weighed on by slower growth across all sectors. In late April, the IMF completed a staff visit. While highlighting broad-based growth and fiscal consolidation efforts in recent years, the Fund encouraged the government to cut red tape and improve the private sector’s access to land and credit.
