According to the article, Viet Nam faced a range of difficulties in the fight against the pandemic last year due to the spread of the Delta variant. However, the Southeast Asian nation has fully opened and shifted to living safely with the pandemic despite Omicron waves this year.

The country’s export-import value hit a record 67.37 billion USD in March, of which 34.71 billion USD came from exports, surpassing the previous record in July 2021.

The article cited a forecast by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) as saying that Viet Nam’s economy will expand about 6.5 percent this year.

It also highlighted Viet Nam’s export of electronic products, especially mobile phones, garments-textiles and timber products.

Tim Lee Lahaphan, an economist from Standard Chartered Bank, said more and more foreign firms have planned to move their supply chains to Viet Nam that is dubbed as a centre of electronics, garments-textile and footwear in the region, the article noted.

Apart from production and trade, the domestic tourism is also bouncing back, the article said, adding that since mid-March, Viet Nam announced its complete resumption of tourism activities.

Tourism has significantly contributed to Viet Nam’s economy, making up 9.2 percent of the national gross domestic product (GDP) last year, the article said.
