VTV.vn - Hanoi recorded year-on-year growth of 8.89% in gross regional domestic product (GRDP) in 2022, higher than the target of 7 - 7.5%, according to the municipal Statistics Office.

This is a high rate compared to those in many recent years, showing the local administration’s determination and businesses’ efforts, the office said on December 28.

The capital city’s growth engine this year is industrial production and services, Office Director Dau Ngoc Hung noted, elaborating that the service sector has expanded 10.06% from last year, contributing 6.44 percentage points to the GRDP growth.

Business, tourism, restaurant, hotel, transportation, and information activities have bounced back strongly in the new normal, creating an impetus for trade and services. Fast-growing services include logistics 15.36%; information and communications 6.5%; administrative activities and support services (including tourism) 40.51%; finance, banking, and insurance 9.19%; and wholesale and retail 8.58%.

Meanwhile, the index of industrial production has increased 8.8% from 2021. The processing and manufacturing industry rose 9%, retaining its important role in common industrial growth.

This result is highly encouraging, mainly thanks to manufacturing firms’ resumption of supply chains after the two years of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Statistics Office went on.
