PM Chinh noted that the macro-economy has been basically stable, major balances maintained, inflation kept under control, and growth promoted since the beginning of the year. In the first four months, state budget collection reached 39.8% of this year’s target, and the trade surplus was more than 6.3 billion USD. PM Chinh said defence, security, and national sovereignty were safeguarded, diplomatic and integration activities were expanded, and the fight against corruption was enhanced. Policies and solutions implemented since the beginning of the year have resulted in improvements in services, particularly tourism services. International organisations like the IMF, the WB, and the OECD continue to forecast growth for the Vietnamese economy this year, according to the PM.
