Vietnam’s Economy in 2023: Navigating Domestic Challenges and Global Headwinds


About the Webinar

The world enters 2023 with major geopolitical and economic uncertainties, including the raging war in Ukraine, intensifying tensions between the United States and China, and high inflation in most countries. Slowing global economic growth is therefore becoming increasingly evident, putting pressures on the economic prospects of Vietnam, one of the most open economies in Asia. To complicate matters further, the country is also navigating through a credit crunch as the government tightens its monetary policy and takes measures to cool down the real estate sector and clean up the corporate bond market. However, there may also be tailwinds from the gradual reopening of China, Vietnam’s most important economic partner.

This webinar will analyse Vietnam’s economic challenges and opportunities in 2023 and what investors should watch out for. It will also discuss the measures that the Vietnamese government should take to deal with the global headwinds and domestic challenges in the year ahead.
