Bloomberg: Vietnam’s economy unexpectedly expands amid virus outbreak

 

  Bloomberg ran an article on Monday saying that Vietnam’s economy unexpectedly expands amid virus outbreak.

It cited figures from the General Statistics Office on Monday that Vietnam recorded positive growth despite shrinking trade activities as a result of the pandemic. GDP in the second quarter rose 0.36% from a year earlier, compared with a revised 3.68% in the first quarter.

Vietnam’s GDP expansion in the first half of 2020 was a modest 1.81% but the country is still likely to be one of the better performers in Southeast Asia this year.
