 Vietnam’s economy will grow at 6.6 percent this year, slightly down from last year’s 7.1 percent, HSBC has forecast in a report it released this week.
 
It said average inflation would be 3.1 percent, meeting the central bank’s target of ‘below 4 percent’.
 
The GDP growth in the first quarter is estimated at 6.8 percent, down from 7.3 percent a year ago. Manufacturing industry contributed the most to the growth while the services sector continued to outperform. The Export growth in the period was the lowest in the last nine years.
 
HSBC said the economy still shows strong signs of growth. In March, the Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) rose, manufacturing and new export orders increased steadily.
 
The industry remains optimistic based on the likelihood of improved demand and investment.
 
Foreign direct investment (FDI) increased steadily since the beginning of the year, and is expected to sustain domestic growth despite external difficulties.
 
Meanwhile, low inflation will enable the central bank to further focus on growth.
 
The Government is expected to continue with reform of health-related services.
 
Manufacturing is expected to remain strong this year after growing at 13.1 percent in the first quarter and contributing 2.5 percentage points to Q1 growth. This was its highest contribution last year.
 
Domestic demand remained strong as growth continued in the wholesale, retail and transportation sectors.
 
The main negative in the first quarter was the slowdown in the growth of the financial sector as credit growth slowed since the second half of 2018 to control inflation.-VNS/VNA
