Vietnam: Industrial production growth rises in July

Industrial production rose 9.7% in July, up from June’s revised 9.0% increase (previously reported: +9.6% year-on-year). July’s figure was underpinned by an uptick in the mining and quarrying sector amid a rebound in coal output. The manufacturing sector continued to expand slightly over 10% in annual terms, while the electricity and water supply subsectors also grew strongly.

Industrial output growth should remain elevated going forward, spearheaded by a burgeoning manufacturing sector. Vietnam is an attractive low-cost base for manufacturing firms, including those looking to relocate from China due to the U.S.-China trade spat.
