* At the meeting, reporting, explaining, revising the draft Resolution on the 2024 Socio-Economic Development Plan, Chairman of the National Assembly's Economic Committee Vu Hong Thanh said some ideas. It is suggested that in the current context, setting a growth target of about 6.0 - 6.5% is quite high, so it should be lower, about 5-6%.

Chairman of the National Assembly's Economic Committee Vu Hong Thanh stated: The GDP growth target is set on the basis of analysis and forecast of the domestic and international situation, taking into account favorable and difficult factors predicted for the year 2024, closely following the orientation, goals and tasks of the 5-year socio-economic development plan. Setting targets at a high level demonstrates the Government's determination to strive to achieve the set goals, and at the same time to ensure harmony and flexibility in implementing the goals, therefore, we propose the National Assembly to keep them as they are as at the draft resolution./.
