In an article posted on July 12, The Business Times of Singapore cited some economists' opinions that said Vietnam’s economy is back on track for a strong recovery this year.

John Paul Lech, portfolio manager at Matthews Asia, said Vietnam is a frontier market star. While frontier markets are generally smaller, less liquid and have limited foreign investor access, it has bucked the trend.

For the first six months of 2022, foreign direct investment FDI into Vietnam grew by nearly 9% to 10.1 billion USD.

Economist Chua Han Teng from DBS, the largest bank in Singapore, forecast Vietnam’s GDP expansion will reach 7% this year to meet the set target.

He held that the service sector will continue growing fast when COVID-19 is classified as an endemic disease. The service sector, especially retails, is bouncing back strongly while the number of new businesses is increasing.

He added Vietnam is emerging as an exporter of information and communications technology, and its market share may develop further.

The United Overseas Bank (UOB) recently upgraded the country’s GDP growth forecast for 2022 to 7% from 6.5% basing on a simulation that there won’t be any more serious disruptions caused by the pandemic.

The optimism was supported by a higher-than-expected GDP growth rate in the second quarter, at 7.7% compared to the same period last year - the fastest pace in 11 years and much higher than the previous estimate of 5.9%. This strong recovery was driven by manufacturing activities which have accelerated for four straight quarters and the rebounded service outputs which have continued regaining its foothold since the last decline in the third quarter of 2021.

However, economist Yun Liu said despite an optimistic growth trend, the energy crisis has begun affecting Vietnam’s growth, recommending the country pay attention to rising growth risks, especially those posed by soaring energy prices.
