NA deputies talked to the press on November 3 on the sidelines of the 14th-tenure National Assembly’s 10th session.

Deputy Duong Minh Tuan of the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau said deputies hailed efforts of the Government in managing socio-economic development and the State budget.

He highly valued the Cabinet’s efforts, attributing the stable economic development and GDP growth in 2020 despite COVID-19 to the whole political system’s engagement and the Government’s firm directions.

For socio-economic development in 2020 as well as efforts in realizing the set economic targets, he said that 2020 is very important because it is the last year of the 5-year term and is also the year to create a premise for the next term. Over the past 4 years, Vietnam maintained very good economic growth, especially in 2020, as Vietnam and many other countries in the world were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Vietnam has been striving to minimize the pandemic’s consequences and done a good job in COVID-19 prevention and control, he said.

Though export and import activities have been affected as they are related to other countries, the realization of targets set by the NA hasn’t been influenced much, Tuan said.

The legislator noted that the expected growth of 2.5-3 percent this year is relatively low.

However, he held that the target of about 6 percent for 2021 is feasible if the country can maintain anti-COVID-19 efforts like at present and successfully stimulate domestic demand./.
