The lawmakers also debated issues regarding public investment, national finance and national target programmes. Legislators held that 2020 is a challenging year with the outbreak of COVID-19 and devastating impacts caused by drought and saltwater intrusion in the Mekong Delta and storms and floods in central Vietnam. Despite such difficulties, Vietnam is among few countries around the world registering positive economic growth this year. They praised the government’s efforts to fulfill the dual goals of fighting the COVID-19 pandemic and boosting socio-economic development, resulting in the stable macroeconomic situation, low-level inflation, and improved growth quality.
