His forecast is similar to the Ministry of Planning and Investment's estimate submitted to the government in August and close to the Asian Development Bank (ADB)'s forecast of 1.8 percent earlier this month.
The estimate was based on business and production performances in August and the first eight months of 2020 in the light of the Vietnamese government's success in containing the spread of COVID-19 as well as extra efforts to disburse public investment and develop a better business climate for investors in the final quarter of the year and years to come, Lam said.
Additionally, Vietnam expects to reap benefits from free trade agreements (FTAs), particularly the EU-Vietnam FTA (EVFTA) which is thought to boost growth of the agriculture, fisheries and industry, he added.
"The government and localities have lifted social distancing rules and restored domestic and international flights," he continued. "The government has been urgently implementing support packages for affected businesses and people to help them ease difficulties and stimulate domestic demand."
The labour transition from the formal to informal sectors during such a difficult period has helped Vietnam avoid a negative growth like many other countries, he explained.
He further noted that China's conomic recovery was also a factor in the positive forecast because of the close trade relations between Vietnam and the world's second largest economy. China remains one of Vietnam's largest importers and exporters of materials and goods, so its positive GDP growth will provide a major impetus for Vietnam's economy, he added.
The ADB forecast Vietnam's economy to expand 1.8 percent in 2020 amid the coronavirus and bounce back to 6.3 percent next year in its recent report.
According to statistics from the Ministry of Planning and Investment, Vietnam continued to maintain a stable macroeconomy with the August Consumer Price Index (CPI) rising 0.07 percent, 0.12 percent lower than the index at the end of 2019 that was the lowest between 2016 and 2020.
Disbursement of public investment surged 45.4 percent in August and 30.4 percent in the first eight months of the year, the highest during the period.
Foreign trade totalled more than 337 billion USD from January to August, up 0.03 percent from a year earlier. Exports exceeded 174 billion USD, a year-on-year increase of 1.6 percent, allowing Vietnam to enjoy over 11.9 billion USD in trade surplus.
Agriculture was forecast to pick up about 2.6 – 2.7 percent this year./.

Boosting support for Vietnamese enterprises to capitalise on free trade agreements (FTAs) and engage more deeply in global supply chains is an important solution to fuel post-pandemic exports and economic recovery, the Export Forum 2020 held in Ho Chi Minh City on November 18 heard.
Experts shre opinions at the Export Forum 2020 on November 18 (Photo: VNA)
Pointing out the challenges facing exports, participants cited the World Bank (WB) as saying that the COVID-19 crisis has had an unprecedented impact on matters such as healthcare, the economy, and society around the world, while at the same time worsening protectionism.
Growing automation and the withdrawal of many countries from global value chains may make it hard for processing and manufacturing and export strategies to prove effective in emerging markets and developed economies, according to the WB.
It also held that although Vietnam has an open economy, its participation in global and regional value chains remains modest and much lower than that of ASEAN countries like Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines.
Vietnam created just 20.4 billion USD in 2018 via its involvement in value chains, ranking 53rd among 174 economies. Its participation in complex stages of those chains also remains low.
Nguyen Huu Tin, Director of the HCM City Investment and Trade Promotion Centre (ITPC), cited the World Development Report 2020 as showing that Vietnam's engagement in value chains is currently at the "limited processing-manufacturing" level.
The country should move to higher levels in value chains to improve productivity, he said.
Vice Chairman of the HCM City People's Committee Le Thanh Liem said the city's trading activities have greatly contributed to the trade revenue of the country as a whole, noting that its exports have increased 10 percent annually on average for many years, with industrial products accounting for over 80 percent of total revenue.
He acknowledged, however, that the impact of COVID-19 and continual changes in trade trends in many regions have considerably affected the city's exports.
Therefore, assisting businesses to access market information, join global supply chains, and raise localisation rates in export items are among the city's top priorities for sustaining export growth and shoring up its economy, Liem added.
Tin said the ITPC has been actively carrying out programmes to help enterprises capitalise on advantages generated by FTAs and promote Vietnam's involvement in global supply chains.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, instead of face-to-face support activities, the centre has provided assistance online to update companies about market information and help them seek partners.
Knowledge about FTAs, especially the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) and the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA), has also been disseminated via different forms, to help businesses make use of the preferential treatment offered under those trade deals, he noted.
Echoing this, Pham Thiet Hoa, General Director of the Saigon Agriculture Corporation, pointed to the need to optimise the advantages brought about by new-generation FTAs in order to boost the participation of Vietnamese agricultural products in global supply chains, saying these agreements feature preferential tariffs on such commodities.
Many experts at the forum suggested the stronger application of modern technologies and equipment in production, the diversification of products and markets, greater connectivity with partners in supply chains, the optimisation of logistics services, and brand building, all of which should be implemented immediately to raise revenue and sustainability in Vietnam's export sector./.

Drought and salinity in 2020 will greatly affect the people's production
At the meeting, Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee - Tran Van Can said: "Two important issues solved in the 2020 dry season are domestic water for people and irrigation for agricultural production. Regarding fresh water for people, basically by April 30, investors will complete the connection with two receiving companies, Dong Tam Company and Can Duoc Urban Environment Company, the tasks of the two companies. The companies must ensure pipes to households. Regarding the production, the Agriculture sector and localities shall base on the implementation of agricultural capital, capital for natural disaster prevention and combat, central capital to support the construction of works for preventing and controlling drought and salinity. In particular, localities need to actively implement dredging works in the on-land canals; propagandize and mobilize the whole population to participate in preventing and fighting against drought and salinity".
According to the forecast of Long An Hydrometeorology Station, in the next few days, the possibility of salinity will continue to rise and penetrate deep into the field. It is forecast that April flows from the upper Mekong to the delta is likely to remain at low tide, saline intrusion in April in the Mekong Delta is likely to remain seriously, greatly affecting production and living. Especially, the area of Mekong river mouth from April 08 to 15, salinity depth is the largest with 4 grams per liter boundary at Vam Co rivers (Vam Co Dong and Vam Co Tay), the scope of influence from 95 -105 kilometers. It is forecasted that the ability of salinity in the delta will be much improved in May 2020, but it still has to pay attention to some unusual cases due to late rains and low upstream flows./.

|Long An encourages farmers in applying high-tech to agricultural production||Long An encourages farmers in applying high-tech to agricultural production|
Hi-tech applications agriculture program according to the Resolution of the tenth Provincial Party Congress in the term of 2015-2020 has showed great results making it suitable for modern agriculture model. However, the implementation has not yet been comprehensive. As per that, local farmers should receive more support from the program.
The cost of using laser-controlled equipment and rice transplant machine should be increased from 30 to 50 percent
After nearly 2 years of implementing the program, the farmers have gradually changed their business operation from small scale of production into production links; the quality and quantity of farming products have met market demand. However, some localities have still faced challenges and difficulties.
Specifically, Vinh Hung district has actively called for local farmers to join in cooperatives, cooperative groups, aiming to reach its target of 4,500 hectares of high-yield rice using high-tech application. However, some farmers are not keen on joining the program.
"I take part in the cooperative in hope of applying high-tech in agricultural production. However, the fee to pay for transplanting rice is about VND 4.5 million per hectare but the cooperatives'support is only 30 percent, lower than my demand.", said Mr.Truong Minh Vuong in Go Xoai hamlet, Hung Dien A commune, Vinh Hung district.
The provincial leaders should carry out the pilot models as well as invest more in infrastructure for hi-tech applied agriculture program
According to the Vice Chairman of the People's Committee of Vinh Hung District - Nguyen Huu Hong, because of the inappropriate support policies, local farmers have hesitated to join in the program. He suggested that the provincial leaders should plan for expenditure, encouraging farmers in using high-tech agricultural application. For instance, the capital for the construction of electric pump station should be increased from VND 133.4 million to at least VND 200 million per station and from 30 to 50 percent for the cost of using laser-controlled equipment and rice transplant machine. At the same time, the provincial leaders should carry out the pilot models as well as invest more in infrastructure for hi-tech applied agriculture program.
Similarly, in Thanh Hoa district, the program has contributed to increasing the value and quality of agricultural products. Therefore, the farmers have got higher profits. "However, the district has met many difficulties such as the lack of electricity to operate pumping stations, unstable market, the shortage of rice transplant machine…In addition, some areas could not apply laser-controlled equipment so the farmers could not get benefits from the program. I propose that the provincial leaders should help the farmers seek the market and adjust some unsuitable policies.", added the Vice Chairman of the People's Committee of Thanh Hoa District - Ho Thi Ngoc Lan.
Overall, farmers in Duc Hoa district have still been facing difficulties in supplying and consuming products. Therefore, they have not actively participated in cooperatives.
By 2020, Long An province will strive to have at least 4 agricultural production areas using high-tech in agricultural production application, including Dong Thap Muoi region; Tan An city; Can Giuoc and Can Duoc districts; Chau Thanh, Duc Hoa and Duc Hue districts. The main products of 4 above mentioned areas are 20,000 hectares of high-yield rice; 2,000 hectares of dragon fruit under VietGAP, GlobalGAP standards; 2,000 hectares of vegetables under VietGAP, GlobalGAP standards and 500-1,000 beeves under VietGAP standard./.

The HCM City Department of Education and Training has submitted a plan with two scenarios to the People's Committee for the opening ceremony of the upcoming 2020-21 academic year.
Each primary, secondary and high school in the city has 1,000-4,000 students, so social distancing cannot be carried out, if required. A full opening ceremony in which everyone attends would be impractical.
Instead, an alternative plan calls for 10 to 20 students to act as representatives for each classroom. But all first, sixth and 10th graders would attend the ceremony under this scenario.
The ceremony would last nearly 60 minutes. As scheduled, it will be organised on September 5. The new school year will start on September 7 and end in late May.
Ha Ngoc Tuan Huy, rector of Lac Long Quan Secondary School in Binh Tan district, said that the school would ensure facilities and safety for students.
Besides disinfecting facilities, the school has prepared devices to check body temperature of its students. All students must wash their hands before entering classrooms. Table surfaces and door handles will be cleaned regularly.
If the city decides to impose social distancing, each classroom will have only about 20 students.
The north central province of Nghe An's Department of Education and Training said that because the province has not recorded any COVID-19 infection, the opening ceremony will still be organised on September 5, with 800,000 students.
The department will instruct educational divisions and schools to ensure safety for students. When they attend the ceremony, they will have to wear masks, wash their hands, and fill out health declarations.
If any student has symptoms such as cough and fever, their health will be checked.
In the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho, students will also attend the opening ceremony on September 5. Those at continuing education centres will organise the ceremony on September 7.
The Department of Education and Training in the southern province of Dong Nai will carry out online teaching and extend the school year to complete the training programme if COVID-19 continues developing complicatedly.
Tran Hung Dao Secondary School in the province, for instance, plans to teach its students more skills online if social distancing is put in place.
In the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak, the opening ceremony will be held on September 5, but it is waiting for the last instruction from the Ministry of Education and Training.
The department will cooperate with the health sector to disinfect schools before the ceremony.
Other provinces such as Binh Thuan and Quang Tri plan to organise an online opening ceremony if there is another COVID-19 outbreak.
Da Nang and Quang Nam do not plan to organise an opening ceremony, and the new school year could begin later because these areas are the COVID-19 epicentre now.
The Ministry of Education and Training has instructed educational departments in provinces and cities to strictly comply with regulations while organizing the opening ceremony to ensure COVID-19 prevention and control.
For provinces and cities carrying out social distancing, schools will hold an online opening ceremony.
Schools should also organise activities related to teaching and learning in the beginning of the new school year to ensure COVID-19 prevention and control.
The ministry has required provinces and cities to review the number of schools, teaching equipment and teachers, especially those for the first grade, for the new school year.
Textbooks should be provided for all students, the ministry said.
To prepare for the upcoming school year, HCM City will put 1,371 new classrooms into use.
The Mekong Delta province of Long An has built more new schools and supplemented teaching devices and equipment for the 2020-2021 school year. The province has allocated total capital of 64.9 billion VND (2.8 million USD) to build 13 schools.
In the province's Ben Luc district, Luong Binh and Thuan Dao primary schools will be put into use in the upcoming school year. Ben Luc Town Primary School and Ben Luc Town Secondary School are under construction. Ben Luc Town Primary School is expected to open next year and the others in the second semester of the 2020-2021 school year.
Schools in Dong Nai province are ready for the new academic year. The Department of Education and Training has completed training courses for teachers at 300 primary schools.
