According to the General Statistics Office of Vietnam reported on Saturday, drugs and healthcare services saw the biggest surge of 8.05%. Among commodities and services having lower CPI, transport services reduced 1.38% due to increasing petroleum and oil prices.

So far this year, inflation has grown 1.62%. Nguyen Bich Lam, Director General of the General Statistic Office of Vietnam, said inflation has been put under control. He said: “We’ve made scenarios for increasing CPI and service fees. For example, we anticipated how the price hike of electricity and healthcare services will impact the CPI and the economy then consulted the government for proper management. The government has asked ministries and sectors to control inflation as requested by the National Assembly.”
