At the 22nd open session of the 11th provincial Party Executive Committee held yesterday morning (March 28), Nguyen Van Loi, member of the Party Central Committee, Secretary of provincial Party Committee, Head of provincial National Assembly Deputy Delegation said: “All of us, especially leaders, must effectively organize the implementation of the tasks of our sectors, units and localities; must take the lead and bear the brunt of solving weak areas, opening up resources for development...".

Difficulties forecasted

At the session, Vo Van Minh, Vice-Secretary of provincial Party Committee, Chairman of provincial People's Committee said that in the first quarter of 2023, in addition to two bright spots on investment for development of the whole society and State budget revenue, in general, the province's economy faced many difficulties, especially in industrial production. Although enterprises were proactive to change their ways of approaching, introducing products and looking for new clients, the number of orders and their size decreased sharply. He said that these difficulties were forecasted because it is difficult for Binh Duong in particular and Vietnam to avoid fluctuations from the world’s situation. Labor-intensive industries, with export markets in Europe and the US, were hardest hit. Many industrial development indicators decreased over the same period, leading to a decrease in State budget revenue from exports against the same period last year.

Nguyen Thanh Toan, Director of provincial Department of Industry and Trade (DoIT) said that the province's export turnover in the first quarter of the year was estimated at more than US$ 7.28 million, down 18.7% over the same period last year. The province’s trade surplus reached more than US$2.17 billion. In the first quarter, the province’s import and export turnover decreased compared to the same period last year. This reflected enterprises ‘difficulties, due to the lack of export orders, leading to a decrease in the import of raw materials and accessories compared to the previous year. He added that signing new export orders for key products of the province such as wood, footwear, textiles, and ceramics faced difficulties. Export orders of major export items all decreased by 20-50% over the same period, leading to a decrease in export turnover. The decline of the world’s demand was a difficult factor and a big challenge for exports of Vietnam in general and of Binh Duong in particular.

Facing with that situation, provincial DoIT coordinated with the Ministry of Industry and Trade, trade counselors abroad to implement many domestic and foreign trade promotion programs, support enterprises to connect and expand markets, sign new export orders. For enterprises, they also promoted investment and diversified products; strengthened sectoral linkages to form up closed production and supply chains; developed green production, digital transformation, increase localization to meet export standards and regulations to markets with competitive advantages in the CPTPP, EVFTA, and RCEP blocs.
