The new Vietnamese economic strategy outlines the following priority areas for reform: innovation development, improving economic efficiency, urbanization and territorial development, promoting environmentally sustainable development, and building efficient modern state institutions.
In 2022, imports from Vietnam amounted to 179.83 million BGN and included flat-rolled products, raw aluminum, coffee, vehicle parts, rubber pneumatic tires, and more.
