A total of 70,220 enterprises temporarily ceased operations, a yearly hike of 34.8%.  Another 45,271 were in the dissolution process, and 16,848 completed dissolution procedures, year-on-year rises of 14.7% and 13.3%, respectively. 

The agency said the total registered capital of enterprises tends to decrease, and the average amount of registered capital of newly-established firms is expected not to rise in the remaining months of this year. 

In January – November, the total registered capital added to the economy rose by 21.5% over the same period in 2021, it noted. 

To support businesses, General Director of the General Statistics Office (GSO) Nguyen Thi Huong urged ministries and sectors to ensure adequate supply of raw materials and energy to meet the demand for production and business recovery and socio-economic development; and work hard to remove difficulties and obstacles for important industrial projects. 

She also underlined the need to strengthen support for export enterprises to effectively respond to trade remedies, saying that the work plays an important role in maintaining and expanding Vietnam’s export markets./. VNA
