Vietnam’s 2024 Economic Outlook
VIETNAM STUDIES PROGRAMME
About the Webinar
Following a robust post-pandemic recovery in 2022, with the GDP rebounding at 8%, the Vietnamese economy has encountered significant challenges both domestically and globally in 2023. As a result, with the estimated GDP growth rate of only 5.1%, Vietnam has been unable to meet the 2023 annual growth target of 6.5% set by the National Assembly.
What factors have contributed to the slowdown of the Vietnamese economy in 2023? How has the Vietnamese government responded to these issues, and will they continue to hinder the country’s economic performance in 2024? This webinar aims to provide a thorough and comprehensive analysis of these pressing questions. It will also examine the prospects for the Vietnamese economy in 2024, as well as the opportunities and potential challenges that investors should be aware of.
