The government-run office informed that 37,700 enterprises resumed operations in the period, an increase of 8.2% inter-annually, bringing the total number of newly-registered and reinstated enterprises in the ten-month period to 148,900, down 0.3%.

Moreover, the number of enterprises which completed procedures for bankruptcy was up 0.1% to 13,500.

Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Vietnamese government has been implementing a wide range of support for the business community, with the latest move being a cut of 30% in the corporate income tax for enterprises having their revenue of less than VND200 billion (US$8.61 million) in 2020.

Additionally, other supporting programs consist of a credit aid package worth VND300 trillion (US$12.87 billion), including a VND180-trillion (US$7.63 billion) fiscal stimulus package in forms of delay of payment of value-added tax, corporate income tax, and a financial support package for vulnerable people worth VND62 trillion (US$2.7 billion).
