HANOI (Reuters) – Vietnam is facing a huge challenge to deliver on its economic growth target of 6.0% to 6.5% for this year, due to domestic and external factors, a deputy prime minister said on Monday.
“In the face of domestic and international developments, it’s a huge challenge to realise 2022 targets, including a target for an economic growth of 6.0%-6.5%,” Le Van Thanh told the National Assembly, referring to the Ukraine-Russia conflict, high inflation pressures and the pandemic.
