Obstacles regarding interest rate support should be removed so that enterprises, cooperatives and households can access capital soon, she said in an interview with Vietnam News Agency on measures that Vietnam should adopt in response to risks from the decline of the global economy.
The implementation of monetary policy should be conducted in a cautious, proactive and flexible manner to ensure interest rate stability as well as to support the economy and stabilise the exchange rate.
Priority should be given to fiscal policy and expanded. Taxes and fees need to be reviewed to provide the best support for businesses to resume production and economic growth.
Measures to control prices, as well as inflation, should be taken to ensure inflation is kept below 4%, Van said.
It is essential for Vietnam to enhance production capacity and build an independent and resilient economy, she said, adding that this orientation will help Vietnam become less dependent on external sources while minimising damage caused by disruptions in global supply chains and from China's "Zero Covid" policy.
Given the fact that major economies face the risk of recession, Vietnam must anticipate the challenges that might arise including imported inflation, she noted.
Vietnam could suffer exchange rate fluctuations as the US and Europe hike interest rates which will have an impact on the world financial market.
The State Bank of Vietnam has recently intervened in the foreign exchange market to stabilise the exchange rate, so foreign exchange reserves will be reduced, she said, adding that this is also a challenge.
According to Van, the adjustment of regulatory interest rates by the SBV aims to narrow the gap between the Vietnamese dong and US dollar, thereby stabilising the exchange rate.
However, it also has an impact on the national economy. An increased interest rate will raise the input costs of enterprises, reducing the need for loans to expand production, thereby affecting the growth potential of the economy, she said./

Vietnam needs to specify target markets and control the implementation of standards in organic agricultural production to meet the needs of the domestic and foreign markets.

At a forum on the development of organic farm produce held by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) on November 21 in Ho Chi Minh City, Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Tran Thanh Nam said that organic agricultural production must be associated with the development of the consumption market.
Organic products with specific characteristics must comply with strict standards and often have low yields and high costs. These products are for the high-end market segment.
According to Nam, organic agriculture development must be the right way to approach potential customers at home and abroad.
Along with reasonable planning, standards and management for the production and certification of organic agricultural products must be strictly implemented to improve the quality of Vietnam's certified organic products.
Vietnamese organic farming products are exported to about 180 countries and territories, with an export turnover of 335 million USD per year. The exported organic farming products are tea, shrimp, rice, cashew nuts, pepper, cinnamon, anise, essential oils, and spices.
The main export markets of those products include France, Denmark, Switzerland, Sweden, China, Cambodia, the US, Italy, Germany, the UK, Russia, Canada, Belgium, Thailand, Malaysia, Netherlands, Hong Kong (China) and Taiwan (China).
According to MARD, market research companies believed that the demand for organic food is on a strong upward trend and even exceeds the supply on the world market.
The scale of the global organic food market is forecast to have an annual growth rate of 14% during 2021-2026, from 227.19 billion USD in 2021 to 259.06 billion USD by 2022 and 437.36 billion USD by 2026. The regions having the fastest growth are North America and Europe.
The Government has issued Decree 109/2018/ND-CP on organic farming regulations and a scheme for developing organic agriculture from 2020 to 2030, creating a foundation for the development of Vietnam's organic agriculture industry, according to Nguyen Quoc Toan, Director of the Department of Agricultural Product Processing and Market Development.
As a result, the area of organic agricultural production is increasing rapidly and has so far reached 174,351 ha, 47% higher than that in 2016. The variety of organic farming products is also increasing though output is lower than expected.
Most localities produce organic farming products. In addition, the number of organisations and individuals doing organic agricultural production is increasing.
Organic agricultural products are mainly consumed in big cities such as Hanoi, Da Nang and HCM City at modern distribution channels such as trading centres, supermarket chains, and convenience stores. Organic farming products on the domestic market are mainly rice, vegetables, fruits, meat, tea, coffee, pepper and cashew nuts.
However, the supply still needs to meet the demand, and many certified organic farming products are for export.
Toan said that developing organic agriculture in Vietnam had faced many difficulties and obstacles and had not had significant results.
There were difficulties in awareness, production costs, input materials, human resources and technology application. Some other major areas for improvement needed more specific support mechanisms and policies to encourage investment and development for organic agriculture. The support scale was small compared to real needs.
Le Trong Kha, CEO of LeKhaMart, said that Vietnam's organic agricultural production was still fragmented, and the production area was still modest and not concentrated.
The planning and linkages among regions and enterprises in rural areas still needed to be improved. In addition, the organisation of production chains had yet to be implemented on a large scale, so the development of organic agriculture had not gained significant results.
The development of organic agricultural products follows the trend but needs to meet strict standards under the standard organic certification, however, according to Kha, the maintenance of organic standards after being certified has yet to be taken seriously.
Vietnam should have strict sanctions to create fairness and transparency in organic farming development, he said./.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) predicted that Vietnam's economy will strongly recover in 2021, reaching macro stability across spheres, from growth to current account deficit and employment.
In July, the IMF said transparency is a very important factor in Vietnam's success, and the multi-media approach has consolidated the people's trust and ensured that the whole society abide by pandemic control measures.
In its World Economic League Table 2021, the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) said Vietnam's economy is expected to move to the 19th position in 2035.
The country's annual rate of GDP growth is forecast to pick up to an average of 7 percent between 2021 and 2025.
Over the subsequent ten years, the Vietnamese economy will expand by 6.6 percent on average each year, the centre said.
In an article titled "A new study shows emerging economies are catching up," The Economist of the UK said "the most successful club spans all today's advanced economies as well as 16 emerging markets, such as China, India, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam."
The UK-based BBC News said Vietnam has minimised the economic damage from COVID-19 and is the only country in South East Asia on track for growth in 2020.
"The country has seen slower growth this year and its once-thriving tourism sector has taken a particularly bad hit, but it has avoided the worst economic effects of the pandemic."
Professor Vladimir Mazyrin, leader of the Centre for Vietnamese and ASEAN Studies of the Far East Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, has described the results of economic development of Vietnam in 2020 as an extraordinary success.
In an interview with Sputnik, the leading Russian expert on Vietnamese economy said positive results were posted amid recession and general crisis.
"For example, within ASEAN, only three countries - Vietnam, Myanmar and Laos - have positive GDP growth. All other countries are red."
Vietnam's 2020 growth is estimated at 2.91 percent.
Prof. Maryzin said this is a great success, which will definitely help Vietnam rise to a higher position in all world rankings in the near future.
So Vietnam's success can be called a phenomenon, he added./.

|Efficience of linking production - consumption lemon GlobalGAP||Efficience of linking production - consumption lemon GlobalGAP|
To help farmers change production methods, switch from traditional farming to the application of advanced science - technology, increase value, increase the competitiveness of agricultural products and create stable output for agricultural product, and so on is the effect from the linkage between GlobalGAP's lemon production and consumption in recent years.
Instead of growing lemons in the traditional way, with little application of science and technology like many other local farmers, Huynh Hau Tien, who lives in Tan Thanh commune, Thu Thua district of Long An province, strongly associates with the Can Tho Fruit Republic One Member Limited Company to produce lemons following GlobalGAP standards for export to the European market right from the early days of converting 10 hectares of inefficient sugarcane land to growing lemons. Accordingly, on an area of 10 hectares of land to grow lemon, Mr. Tien strictly adheres to the global good agricultural practice from selecting seeds, planting, caring to harvest. In particular, he paid special attention to applying sparse planting techniques, minimizing the use of fertilizers, chemical drugs, instead increasing the use of biological drugs and organic fertilizers, and so on, contributing to to ensure that lemons do not have residues of fertilizers, pesticides, qualified and quality exported to the European market - one of the fastidious markets of the world.
Currently, the Can Tho Fruit Republic One Member Limited Company is associating with purchasing more than 1,000 hectares of lemons, of which 200 hectares are produced in the direction of GlobalGap, the rest are produced under the TFA process
Thanks to the application of scientific and technological advances according to the GlobalGAP production standard, Tien's lemon garden helps to reduce pests, diseases, and grow well, its yield is 25 tons per hectare per year, 5 tons per hectare per year higher than normal planting. When applying scientific and technological progress according to GlobalGAP production standards also prolongs the life span of lemon trees to 10 years; at the same time, change farmers' thinking of production. Mr. Tien said: "Growing lemons according to GlobalGap standards, on average per hectare, I only plant 450 trees (normal planting is 600-700 trees); The company sent a team of engineers to guide and take care of the lemon garden regularly and support the construction of warehouses, pits for treating lemons and diseases, etc. During the integration period, to be stable on agricultural output, in which having lemon trees requires farmers to put quality, safety and food hygiene first. Therefore, production according to GlobalGAP standards is a must-to-do for farmers now and in the future".
Being an "unprofessional person" converted from sugarcane land for low productivity and low profit to growing lemon, Mr. Le Van Dang, living in Tan Thanh commune, Thu Thua district, could not be surprised, not even dare to invest much. However, since signing a contract with the Can Tho Fruit Republic One Member Limited Company, he has become a good farmer in applying science and technology in lemon production. Looking at Mr. Dang's lemon garden, the fruit is lush, green and smooth, no trace of pests, diseases, branches, dry branches, even spoiled fruit, rotten fruit, and so on proves this effectiveness.
Mr. Huynh Hau Tien plants 10 hectares of lemons in the direction of GlobalGAP, contributing to creating clean products and increasing competitiveness in the market
Mr. Dang shared: "After the combination, the company's officers accompany in all production stages, especially the output of stable products, selling prices higher than the market from 3,000-4,000 VND per kilo, increasing profits. 15-20 percent more than before. In addition, my family also strongly converted the remaining ineffective sugarcane growing area to lemon cultivation. Now, family economy is stable, life is constantly improving, all thanks to the lemon trees".
Currently, the area of production and consumption of lemons according to GlobalGAP standards between Long An farmers and the Can Tho Fruit Republic One Member Limited Company is about 200 hectares. By the end of 2021, this area will increase to 260 hectares and continue to increase rapidly in the near future. Head of The Fruit Republic Can Tho Co., Ltd - Ho Vu Khanh information: "Currently, the associated company purchases more than 1,000 hectares of lemons, of which 200 hectares are produced in the direction of GlobalGap, the rest are produced according to TFA process. It is expected that every year, the company will increase 30 percent more lemon planting area in the direction of GlobalGap in Long An. Through the linkage between the company and farmers, the company will contribute to changing the thinking of production for farmers, towards clean production, avoiding dependence on the Chinese market, and instead targeting the European market. After a time of connecting, all people participating in the association have well observed the production process of the company, especially no farmer has left the link".
It can be seen that the linkage model between the Can Tho Fruit Republic One Member Limited Company and lemon farmers in the province is bringing about many effects and potentials, contributing to the province's development of the model associated with the Project applying technology in production of lemon trees, promoting rapid and sustainable development of local agricultural products./.

|Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development - Nguyen Xuan Cuong surveys consumption of dragon fruits in Long An||Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development - Nguyen Xuan Cuong surveys consumption of dragon fruits in Long An|
On February 11, the delegation of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development headed by the Central Party Committee Member, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development - Nguyen Xuan Cuong as the head of the delegation, had a survey actual situation of purchasing fruits in Long An province.
Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee, Chairman of the Provincial People's Council - Pham Van Ranh, Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee - Tran Van Can receive the delegation.
The whole province currently has 11,825.7 hectares growing dragon fruit, of which the area for fruit is about 9,586.2 hectares, the yield of 321.5 quintals per hectare, the output of 317,932 tons, concentrated mainly in Chau Thanh, Tan Tru, Ben Luc, Thu Thua districts and Tan An city.
Currently, dragon fruit is in the harvest season but the consumption situation is facing many difficulties. The amount of unexploited dragon fruit from the end of January 2020 is now about 30,000 tons. 59,580 tons will be harvested in February 2020 and 31,750 tons will be harvested in March 2020. Facing the complicated situation of acute pneumonia caused by the new strain of Corona virus, a series of markets and border gates to China are announcing the delay of opening time, Chinese partners purchasing dragon fruits will not accept goods.
At the meeting, Deputy General Director of Lavifood Group - Dinh Hung Dung said that some of the main fruits that the group purchased were harvested in large quantities after Tet 2020, while at the beginning of the year with difficulties. Fruit that the group buys and processes is mainly exported to the Chinese market. To help farmers solve the output, the group has stepped up purchasing to freeze. The volume of goods purchased in this phase of the group is over 1,000 tons.
Currently, all of the group's cold stores are full. Therefore, the group has to hire a lot of warehouses of other businesses to continue purchasing fruits for farmers.
To overcome the current difficulties, Chairman of Long An Provincial People's Committee - Tran Van Can proposed: The Government has a policy to support the electricity cost for running cool storage (support for the production electricity price equal to the cost of living electricity from the middle of February 2020 to the end of March 2020), providing loan interest support for enterprises purchasing, preserving and exporting agricultural products with preferential rates for 6 months; The ministry considered proposing the establishment of a distribution center for agricultural products in the Chinese market as a focal point for dealing with domestic enterprises to limit risks; Survey and search for other agricultural export markets outside China; The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Ministry of Industry and Trade regularly provide information and support the export of dragon fruits at the northern border gates to timely regulate and continue negotiations with China to solve difficulties in exporting agricultural products.
Speaking at the survey, Mr. Nguyen Xuan Cuong emphasized that, in recent years, the whole country has focused on restructuring the agricultural sector in a synchronized manner. One of the positive changes is Vietnam's fruit and vegetable sector, which achieved positive results. 10 years ago, Vietnam's exports only reached tens of millions of dollars. By this time, the area of vegetables and fruits of Vietnam is about 1.6 million hectares, equal to 45 percent of the rice area but exports reach over 4 billion USD.
With these achievements, in the 7 key economic regions of the country, the Mekong River Delta has certain advantages. The area currently covers about 0.4 million hectares with 10 tropical fruits. This is a potential area of 60-70 percent of Vietnam's total export of fruits. Long An province is one of the localities to develop fruit trees with high efficiency, especially dragon fruit on 11,000 hectares. In the immediate future, a number of corporations, businesses and large factories processing, manufacturing and exporting agricultural products in general and Long An in the same time must be at the same time. At the same time, he also appreciated the industry and businesses of Long An that supported farmers to plant dragon fruits in the area.
Responding to the call, many businesses, organizations, individuals and so on have embarked on action to energize Vietnamese farmers and further contribute to initiatives, accompanying agricultural development in Vietnam sustainable, proactive and effective way.
At the meeting, Minister Nguyen Xuan Cuong and the delegation witnessed the commitment of Vietnamese farmers and farmers to accompany the farmers and agriculture of Vietnam such as Saigon Commercial Joint Stock Bank (SCB), Chain Co.opMart supermarket, Green Startup Fund, Lavifood Investment Joint Stock Company, etc./.

|Garment, textile, footwear industries face declining in orders||Garment, textile, footwear industries face declining in orders|
Enterprises in the textile, garment and footwear industries are facing a decrease in orders through the rest of this year and possibly into the next year.

Pham Xuan Hong, chairman of HCM City Textile and Embroidery Association, said in the eight months of 2022, Vietnam's textile and garment export value reached 30.1 billion USD, but this value mainly came from the first months of the year. Since July, textile and garment industry enterprises have been facing many difficulties, including the reduction in export orders.
Many textile and garment enterprises in HCM City are seeing a sharp drop in export orders, mainly in the US and EU, because inflation pressure in these nations is large, forcing consumers to tighten spending. Furthermore, textiles are not essential goods, Hong said.
An analysis report on the textile industry published by VNDirect Research has also commented that the demand for high-end clothing items such as shirts and t-shirts made from recycled cotton fibres would slow down in the second half of 2022.
According to this report, garment companies said that US customers had shortened the period of ordering exports to three months before the deadline for goods delivery instead of six months due to high inventories and inflationary pressures.
At present, only a few large enterprises, such as Thanh Cong (TCM), Century Yarn (STK), and Damsan Joint Stock Company (ADS), have enough export orders for the third quarter of 2022. Still, some customers have cancelled the orders due to high inventory, while fourth-quarter orders have also slowed due to inflation concerns.
In the EU market, Pham Van Viet, chairman of Viet Thang Jean Co, Ltd, has also admitted that the orders of his firm have decreased by over 30 % and they have been forced to cut working hours to maintain jobs.
In the US and Europe, although the world fuel prices have decreased, inflation in these markets is still high to make people tighten their spending. This has negatively impacted the textile and garment exports of Vietnamese enterprises because the two markets account for a large proportion of Vietnam's textile, garment and footwear export.

According to a representative of the Vietnam Leather, Footwear and Handbag Association, Vietnamese leather and footwear exports would certainly be affected by the last months of the year due to inflation and reduced consumer demand in key markets. Many enterprises in the leather and footwear industry would face a reduction in export orders from now until the beginning of 2023. Meanwhile, the leather and footwear industry is in inventory due to the reduced consumer demand.
To cope with this situation, the association said the footwear enterprises had been forced to reduce overtime. At the same time, they have negotiated with partners to do orders that were signed during the pandemic for maintaining operations and ensuring employee income.
Textile, garment, leather and footwear are all major export industries of Vietnam and are directly affected by fluctuations in the world market.
The shortage of raw materials for production is due to strict anti-pandemic measures in the Chinese and Japanese markets. Along with that, the difficult economy and increasing inflation in the large markets have affected enterprises' purchasing power, orders and prices.
According to General Director of Dap Cau Garment Corporation Luong Van Thu, the corporation has seen difficulties in the market and consumption of goods, as well as a reduction in terms of scale and price of export orders from the beginning of this third quarter. As a result, orders from major markets in the US and Europe have fallen by up to 50 %.
Hong said that exports are unlikely to recover soon.
At present, large enterprises with many orders tend to share their orders with other enterprises lacking orders. Meanwhile, some others are looking for short-term opportunities in the domestic market, Hong said.
Besides that, the enterprises are looking for orders in new markets. For example, the HCM City Textile, Embroidery and Knitting Association enterprises have recently cooperated with partners in India and Pakistan to get orders from these markets.
Truong Van Cam, vice chairman and general secretary of the Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association, said that the association is making statistics to have solutions for supporting the enterprises. It focuses on those having a large decrease in orders, affecting workers.
To overcome the difficulties, Cam has suggested that overseas Vietnamese trade offices continue to share information about the markets, especially the EU.
The Vietnam Trade Office in China coordinates with China's authorities to create favourable conditions for transporting material for production promptly.
The Vietnam trade offices in the US and France must provide information about the market and suitable textile and garment fairs for local enterprises.
In addition, the enterprises themselves also need to diversify markets, promote digital transformation and innovate technology.
According to Le Tien Truong, chairman of the Vietnam National Textile and Garment Group (Vinatex), unpredictable fluctuations will remain due to many factors, especially the Russia-Ukraine conflict, price fluctuations of raw materials and fuel, and inflation in export markets such as the US and Europe.
Therefore, Vinatex will have solutions to stabilise export orders, jobs and customers for the year's production and business results.
To increase competitiveness, Việt Nam's garment industry needs to prioritise the production of packages, yarn and fabric, and sewing. It also prioritises the development of green and recycled products to promote exports to European countries, Truong said.
The business community expects the Government to soon approve the "Development strategy of the textile, garment and footwear industries until 2030, with a vision to 2035", creating favourable conditions for developing green industrial parks.
Large enterprises centralise wastewater treatment, advanced technology, and green technology to attract investment in textile dyeing. That would solve problems in fabric, meet origin requirements and take advantage of free trade agreements.
At the same time, the State is considering removing import tax imposed on materials for producing export goods; soon implementing supportive packages for business recovery and employees.
According to VNDirect Research, the domestic textile and garment industry will be brighter in the first quarter of next year because garment products will reduce 2-4 % in export tax to the EU market in 2023 under the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA).
In addition, the European Commission forecasts that inflation in the bloc will reach 8.3 % in 2022 and fall to 4.3 % in 2023.
The research believes lower inflation will stimulate shopping demand for fashion items in 2023. Therefore, it expects some textile enterprises exporting suits, shirts, pants and skirts to Europe would benefit from EVFTA, including May Song Hong, May 10 and Viet Tien./.
