Vietnam economy recovers evidently

07/10/2014


At the Government's regular meeting in the last September, the government pledged to complete multiple targets and key objectives on economy and society in 2014 assigned by Vietnam National Assembly.
At the meeting, the Government agreed with the forecast that this year Vietnam will basically achieve the objectives and targets of the plan in which the ability to achieve the economic growth target of 5.8% is entirely feasible. However, the Government also agreed that Vietnamese economy still faces many difficulties and challenges such as weak aggregate demand, difficult production and business, higher bad debt, difficulties in the budget balance, high costs, slow restructuring, productivity, quality volume at low competition ...
However, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung requested ministries, sectors and levels are not subjective and satisfied but to see the strong point to promote and weaknesses to overcome, striving to achieve the highest levels goals, targets in 2014 with a dynamic spirit, creativity, depth, strong growth momentum over to 2015.
In addition, the government devoted special attention to the problem of resolving the bad debt. Government requested the State Bank of Vietnam to further direct commercial banks to take appropriate measures to effectively handle bad debt, engaging with business in solving bad debts. Besides, the State Bank of Vietnam also needs to have effective plans for dealing with purchased bad loans and continues buying bad debts from credit institutions.
Regarding labor productivity in 2013, Vietnam stood in the lowest group in the Asia-Pacific region and the three lowest countries in Southeast Asia, including Vietnam, Myanmar and Cambodia. This information made the Prime Minister  very impatient at the government meeting this time.
Presenting to government and explaining to reporters, Minister of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs Pham Thi Hai Chuyen and  Deputy Minister Doan Mau Diep said that labor productivity of a national is calculated by taking gross domestic product (GDP) divided by the number of workers. However Deputy Minister Doan Mau Diep Deputy considered GDP is created by three elements including labor, capital and technical expertise. There a fact that, a Vietnamese in South Korea can work as much as a labour there.
Before this information, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung requested the National Council for Sustainable Development and Competitiveness Improvment with the relevant agencies to study problem. The comparative analysis of labor productivity need to specify the weaknesses, limitations. More specifically, the agency should specify the labor productivity of Vietnam is low due to restrictions in which step, skills training, employment, or obsolete technologies,? When this is specified, it will make formal assessment of labor productivity of Vietnam in any position in the region and around the world and have specific direction to strive to improve labor productivity.
