Vietnam’s socio-economic performance in 2012 and the first four
months of this year was high on the agenda at the National Assembly
(NA)’s fifth session that opened in Hanoi on May 20.
Addressing the opening session, Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc
said although the socio-economic situation is moving in the right
direction, it remains slow and fragile. It is forecast that Vietnam
will still face challenges in socio-economic development while the
global economic climate remains uncertain.
