The level of success, Prime Minister said, is determined not only by what we have achieved, but also by the obstacles we have overcome. The year 2020 must be considered the most successful year of Vietnam in the past 5 years in terms of spirit and will to rise in all difficulties and challenges.

The Prime Minister said that, with the determination of the entire political system, the consensus of the people and enterprises, the country created more than 1,200 billion USD of GDP in nearly 5 years, on a stable economic basis.

The Prime Minister cited data from international organizations such as: The Economist magazine in August 2020 ranked Vietnam in the top 16 most successful emerging economies in the world; according to the World Bank, with an average economic growth of 6.8% a year in the 2016-2019 period, Vietnam is in the top 10 of the highest growing countries.

He emphasized that the country's economic growth was contributed by the impressive growth of many emerging localities, which are inspiring factors for many other localities to surpass themselves. Growth does not depend much on any particular economic sector.

Regardless of the circumstances, the Government has identified the limitations and difficulties, such as economic growth not commensurate with the potentials, the life of a part of the population is not guaranteed, the income level is still low, the quality of education and health still has many shortcomings in general.

 

The Prime Minister also mentioned issues close to the people such as traffic accidents, gambling, drugs, environmental pollution...

The Prime Minister said that, in the twenty-first century, the world may not remember the countries leading in income, but will always remember the countries, organizations and individuals pioneering in a number of achievements and contributions for better the life of people.

“Vietnam is not yet in the top group of countries in the world in terms of income, but it is completely able to be a leader in some areas. We need to see opportunities early when others see risks,” the Prime Minister said.

He also said that the targets for 2021 have been balanced and calculated on many factors. The situation has many challenges, but the Government is determined to administer it to increase GDP growth by 0.5 percentage points in 2021.
