Despite facing many unpredictable challenges, Binh Duong's socio-economy has recovered and achieved many positive results in all fields. Cultural and social activities quickly recovered and prospered in line with safe, flexible and effective adaptation to the COVID-19 pandemic.

These challenges are likely to last until the first quarter of next year.
