(VOVworld) – The UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific forecasts Vietnam’s growth in 2016 and 2017 will be 6.8-6.9%. In its 2016 report, the Committee said the TPP and the Vietnam-EU FTA will help Vietnam attract more investment, expand its markets, and increase exports. However, the report said Vietnam will have to meet more demanding environmental and labor requirements and increase its production costs over a short period of time.
