HO CHI MINH CITY - After disappointing GDP growth in the first quarter of 5.15% YoY, Vietnam achieved 6.17% YoY for the second quarter, taking the figure for the first half to 5.73% YoY. Sector-wise, solid growth continued to be seen in the manufacturing and construction sectors (+10.5% YoY and +8.5% YoY in 1H, respectively), but the mining sector was still weak (-8.2% YoY) due to low oil prices.
