Trade deficit increases sharply

Vietnam’s trade deficit in May increased to a record 1.2 billion USD, raising the total trade deficit figure in the first five months of this year to 1.9 billion USD.

It is the third consecutive month the country has seen its trade deficit increase, up from 545 million USD in March and 936 million USD in April.
