Vietnam - Current Account

In Q2, the economy likely maintained most of Q1’s momentum. Industrial activity continued improving in April–May in annual terms. In particular, manufacturing growth soared to a 13-month high in May: Looser pandemic restrictions, growth in new orders and higher staffing levels more than offset supply shocks due to the war in Ukraine and lockdowns in China. Retail sales growth in April–May also rebounded from Q1’s contraction. Retail sales were likely boosted by the removal of Covid-19 restrictions and an invigorated tourism sector, with international arrivals skyrocketing 1,184% in annual terms in May. In other news, Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh said in late May that growth may undershoot the government’s 6.0–6.5% target this year, due to an expected slowdown in global demand and the government’s reluctance to boost expenditure.
