Before the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, Viet Nam’s annual economic growth rate averaged at 6.3% from 2010–2019, propelled by investments, a buoyant domestic consumption, rising middle class, and exportoriented manufacturing. Viet Nam weathered the COVID-19 impacts well in 2020, sustaining growth at 2.9%, among the highest growth in the Asia and Pacific region. However, the rise of COVID-19 cases from the Delta variant in 2021 severely affected the economy, dragging down the 2021 growth to 2.6%. Gross domestic product growth is forecast at 6.5% in 2022 and 6.7% in 2023—a rebound made possible by Viet Nam’s high COVID-19 vaccination coverage, the shift to a more flexible pandemic containment approach, expanding trade, and the Government of Viet Nam’s economic recovery and development program.
Viet Nam was one of the founding members of ADB in 1966. ADB has since supported the country’s poverty reduction achievements and has more recently been helping guide measures to increase the inclusiveness of infrastructure and service delivery, and improve environmental sustainability and climate change response.
