The figures were revealed in Vietnam’s strategy for the development of services sector in 2021-2030, with vision to 2050.

In the first quarter of this year, the service sector witnessed positive growth of 3.34% as the Covid-19 pandemic is gradually contained, contributing 35.7% to the overall economic growth of 4.48%.
