 Vietnam’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in the first quarter of this year was estimated to increase 5.03 percent year-on-year, higher than the 4.72 percent growth rate in the same period last year, according to the General Statistics Office (GSO).
 
Vietnam's economy in the first three months of 2022 has seen many positive changes compared to the previous year, Nguyen Thi Huong, General Director of GSO, said at a press conference to announce socio-economic statistics in the first quarter, adding that the service industry is on strong recovery and the industrial sector is developing quite well, especially manufacturing.

Aquaculture has developed stably, and pangasius and shrimp were sold at high prices due to strong demand.

Contributions of some market service industries with a large proportion to the total added value are financial, banking and insurance activities; transport and warehousing; wholesale and retail sectors, lodging and catering services with 9.75 percent, 7,06 percent, 2.98 percent and 1,79 percent, respectively.
