Vietnam's central bank to cut policy rates from tomorrow to spur growth
The State Bank of Vietnam (SBV) will cut its key policy rates from Thursday to boost economic growth that is now picking up pace, after the global impact of the coronavirus saw it expand at its slowest rate in decades in the second quarter. The refinancing rate will be cut to 4.0% from 4.5% and the discount rate to 2.5% from 3.0% the central bank said in a statement on Wednesday. The rate cuts, the second time in just over four months, are in line with the government's measures to "help firms and people overcome difficulties and cope with the COVID-19," the central bank said in the statement.
Vietnam increases GDP growth target to 3 pct
Vietnam targets GDP growth of 3 percent this year despite the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc announced the target, which is 0.5 percentage points higher than the target announced last month, at a meeting on Friday, saying Vietnam’s economy was on the road to recovery. The country has now successfully contained two waves of Covid-19 in March and July while sustaining economic growth unlike many global and Southeast Asian economies, which have been contracting.
Investment from State budget increased at highest rate during 2016-2020
According to the General Statistics Office (GSO), total social investment during the last nine months increased by 4.8% compared to the same period in 2019, the lowest increase in the 2016-2020 period due to the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic on all production and business activities. However, the growth rate of investment capital from the State budget in September and over the past nine months reached their highest levels in the 2016-2020 period as a result of the accelerating disbursement of public investment, in order to maintain the momentum of economic growth while controlling the epidemic well.

Experts unable to agree on location for Hanoi's second airport
A proposal to build a second international airport in Hanoi has elicited mixed opinions from aviation and planning experts. The city's Department of Planning and Architecture recently recommended the construction of the airport in the southern district of Ung Hoa, 40 kilometers from downtown, to meet the growing demand for air travel. However, Ung Hoa is not an ideal choice since it is low-lying and used to be a flood discharge area. Aviation expert Pham Van Toi approved the choice of Ung Hoa but said the location also depends on other factors such as vertical clearance, geology, climate, and hydrology, and Hanoi needs to make a thorough evaluation.
Work commences on three north-south expressway sections

The other two are the Vinh Hao-Phan Thiet and Phat Thiet-Dau Giay sections, which saw the attendance of Deputy Prime Ministers Trinh Dinh Dung and Truong Hoa Binh at ground-breaking ceremonies in Binh Thuan and Dong Nai Provinces, respectively. The three sections will cost a total of VND37 trillion (US$1.6 billion) and are expected to be completed by the end of 2022.
