Vietnam's 2020 economy and the logistics industry viewed from positive lens

When the spring spreads brilliant sunshine, bringing confidence and hope for a new year with new opportunities, it is also the time for us to look back at the overall picture of the past year. Overcoming all the "low notes" of the global economy due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, Vietnam's economic growth are still evaluated among the most positive ones by international organizations.

Vietnam is among the few countries that still maintain positive GDP growth and rapid economic recovery, surpassing 5 major economies in Southeast Asia to become one of the 16 most successful emerging economies in the world. These positive results are a resonance of the Vietnamese government's drastic control over the epidemic and early release of policies and solutions to support businesses and the community.

Being one of the "backbones" of the economy, in the context of the complicated pandemic along with major challenges facing the industry in 2020, logistics remains one of Vietnam’s fastest and most stable growth industries with the average growth rate of 14% - 16% per annum. The most recent World Bank's Logistics Performance Index ranks Vietnam at 39 out of 160 countries. This is the best ranking that Vietnam has ever achieved since 2007 and the 3rd highest in Southeast Asia.

The bright spots of the Logistics industry, viewed from positive lens, have contributed to creating strong motivations to speed up the "vehicle" of the national economy entering a new era, catching up growth opportunities, especially when Vietnam will benefit from the participation in bilateral and multilateral free trade agreements (FTAs); from the shifting, repositioning supply chains to countries with stable political and economic systems, better costs and great growth potential.

Leverages for logistics industry in the new era

A few notes cannot make a concert, recognizing the important role of the logistics industry in economic growth, continuing to create leverages to promote the industry is an urgent task not only for the government but also for the whole business community.

One of the main targets is to provide good solutions on logistics costs for businesses

One of the main targets is to provide good solutions on logistics costs for businesses. According to the World Bank, Vietnam's logistics costs as a proportion of GDP are about 18% - 20%, almost double that of developed economies and 4% higher than the global average.

Looking at leverage solutions from the government's perspective, the improvement of the transport system, especially synchronous transport planning, will create a powerful support in the process of transporting goods and minimize logistics costs; It is necessary to consolidate the policy mechanism and incentives so that logistics enterprises will reduce costs and increase competitiveness; It is also necessary to reduce current high costs such as tolls, costs of using the infrastructure system, etc…; On the other hand, it is necessary to increase fees that are currently too low compared to other countries in the region such as charges for cargo handling at ports to have more budget for reinvesting in infrastructure upgrade. In addition, the simplification of procedures, sub-licenses and emphasis on the training and development of high-quality logistics human resources are also important levers.

Joining hands with the government, businesses need to focus on investing and developing integrated logistics systems to provide a chain of fullpackaged services with effective costs to customers; Working together to synergize strengths of each other; Being specialized, focusing on investment and develop modern technology application; Improving capacity for effective management and operation of the supply chain; Being proactive in investment and development of logistics human resources and the most important lever is to provide comprehensive logistics solutions.
