Vietnam’s Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI) has established a central steering committee to launch a general economic survey in 2017.

The committee will build plans to carry out surveys in various aspects such as production and business results, the application of information technology, the situation of labourers and their incomes, and enterprises’ access to credit, reported Vietnam’s state-run news agency VNA on Thursday.

From March 1 to May 30, 2017, the MPI will collect information on the operations of businesses, associations, unions and administrative and non-productive agencies.

Information on individually-run production and business units, which are not involved in agriculture, forestry and aquaculture, will be gathered in July 2017.

Meanwhile, data related to individual units dealing in agriculture, forestry and aquaculture have already been assembled in 2016, said VNA.

Preliminary data for next year will be made public in December 2017 while the official results are expected to be announced in the third quarter of 2018.
