The ANZ-Roy Morgan Vietnam Consumer Confidence Index increased by 1.4 points to reach 135.5 in August.

ANZ Bank economists announced this in a report dated August 27, adding that the rise of the index was primarily driven by increasing consumer confidence about economic conditions in Vietnam over the next year.

The index is now clearly above 2014's to-date average of 131.6 and is at the highest level recorded since March.

The ANZ Bank and Roy Morgan Research launched the monthly private consumer index for Vietnam in July, with surveys covering major cities and provinces across the nation./.
