She said Vietnam recorded an economic growth of 7.08
percent in 2018 and 6.76 percent in the first six months of this year, with
the stable macro economy and low inflation rate.

commitments to project progress and quality, and protect the environment,
which, the top legislator said, is of Vietnam’s special concern.
Vietnam is attracting investments in some major
areas, especially projects that target environmental protection, sustainable
development and cutting-edge technological transfer, Ngan said.

top legislator about their firms’ production, business and potential in
insurance, finance, infrastructure construction and energy.

the most rapid economic growth worldwide, and boasts substantial potential
