Standard Chartered Bank has lowered Việt Nam’s 2024 GDP growth forecast to 6 per cent from the previous 6.7 per cent due to lower-than-expected Q1 growth and global trade headwinds.  
However it is still an improvement from 5 per cent in 2023. Q1-2024 GDP growth moderated to 5.7 per cent (from 6.7 per cent in Q4-2023). The bank lowered Q2 year-on-year growth forecast to 5.3 per cent (from 6.3 per cent) and Q3 to 6 per cent. But Q4 growth is expected to be recovered to 6.7 per cent. 
According to Standard Chartered’s economist in its recent macro-economic updates about Việt Nam, trade, a key source of growth and investment for Việt Nam also faces short and long term challenges. However, Việt Nam’s recovery remains intact despite risks. Retail sales growth was still robust in Q1.
Standard Chartered also lowers 2024 inflation forecast to 4.3 from 5.5 per cent to reflect lower-than-expected Q1 inflation. The bank expects rates to stay on hold at 4.5 per cent until end-Q3 and could be raised by 50 bps in Q4 in response to growth-driven inflation.
“Việt Nam is improving its position in global supply chains. Foreign investment continue to be attracted by a favourable investment environment and potential ramp-up of US-China trade tensions,” said Tim Leelahaphan, Economist for Thailand and Việt Nam, Standard Chartered. “With economic recovery starting to gain momentum, we think there will be less need to provide monetary policy support”, he added.
According to Tim, there is a balanced view on the Vietnamese given improvements on the external front and reserve rebuilding. Strong export growth provides some support for the currency. Imports point to further gains. The bank forecasts a current account surplus of 3.5 per cent GDP in 2024. — VNS
