Country Economic Forecasts - Vietnam

Growth accelerated to an above-forecast 6.7% in 2015 as FDI reached record levels and export growth stayed strong despite depressed commodity prices. Our forecast shows growth staying in the 6-7% range in 2016-18 as improvements in trade access compensate for slowdown in some key trade partners, and non-textile industrial growth promotes export diversification. Inflation will pick up modestly from low rates at the end of 2015, but fiscal tightening and improved monetary control will avert the need for a slowdown in growth to stabilise prices. January’s ruling party congress reappointed the present general secretary for another five years and lined up a new prime minister likely to continue the cautious reforms of the past 10 years. This will maintain the improvement in business conditions and gradual sell-off of state industries that lifted FDI to record levels in 2015.
