UN Assessment on Economic Impacts of COVID-19 and Strategic Policy Recommendations for Viet Nam

This report presents an assessment of the economic impact of the pandemic on vulnerable groups, households and enterprises based on information produced by the Government of Viet Nam, other international development partners and the United Nations agencies in Viet Nam. It is aimed at helping to inform the Government of Viet Nam’s response and recovery to COVID-19.

The report provides (i) an update on the epidemiological situation and Viet Nam’s COVID-19 response; (ii) a review of the global and regional economic context including the role of economic imbalances that predated the pandemic on the impact on the recovery; (iii) a summary of the economic impact of COVID-19 in Viet Nam; (iv) estimations of the loss of income and employment, focusing on micro and small businesses and vulnerable workers and their families, while exploring the impact on specific vulnerable groups, including migrants, people living in remote and underserved areas, ethnic minorities, people with underlying health conditions, people with disabilities and others.
