Monthly Report on Implementation of Industrial Projects in Vietnam – August 2020

(HOUSELINK) – HOUSELINK’s Market Research team conducted Monthly Report to provide better insights about investment and implementation status of Industrial Projects in Vietnam.

The complication of Covid-19 pandemic causing the disruption in supply chain, combining with the epidemic rebound in some localities across the country from the end of July 2020, has affected the recovery of industrial production. The industrial production index in August 2020 fell 0.6% compared to the same period last year. In which, the mining industry had the worst effect (down 5.1%), due to the decreasing fuel demand in the recent months.

Based on the data of industrial projects with a total investment of more than US $2 million (equivalent to VND 46 billion) with foreign direct investment (FDI) and domestic direct investment (DDI) on HOUSELINK platform, we have conducted data collecting, analyzed and formulated report on projects under construction in July 2020, as well as projects planning for construction (in the stage of planning, design, bidding) within 2020.
