QTV - According to statistics from the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the index of industrial production (IIP) in the first 6 months of 2017 was reported at a year-on- year increase of 6.2%.However, this increase is still lower than that of the same period last year.

The processing and manufacturing industry reports the highest growth rate at 10.5%

The main reason is the decline of the mining industry and the  slight increase of electricity sector. Notably, the processing and manufacturing industry saw substantial growth over the previous months.With domestic commodity market, especially essential goods for daily consumption is relatively stable, the goods supply of businesses is quite profuse and diversified, commodity price is not fluctuating.
