The move aims to examine the efficiency of business operation, the application of information and technology, and the structure of manufacturing agencies and distribution of workers in each locality and economic sector, said Nguyen Bich Lam, GSO director.
The GSO will devise statistics criteria in 2016, the first year of the socio-economic development strategy through 2020 and the national gross domestic product and gross regional domestic product targets, and update a database on businesses.
A new feature of this year's survey is collecting data on foreign non-governmental organizations in Vietnam to fully assess manufacturing activities of all economic organizations and individuals, said Lam.
The GSO will also use information from the taxation sector, the state treasury, and other state management agencies on health, education-training, culture-sports, and information-communication for references.
The survey will be carried out in two periods, with the first running from Wednesday for businesses and administrative units, and the second from July 1 for individual manufacturing facilities and religious organizations.
The statistics sector will work with relevant ministries and sectors from central to local levels to carry out the vital economic inspection, said the GSO chief.
Basic information collected, the survey will reveal the operational efficiency of Vietnam's state-run and non-state enterprises as well as foreign-invested companies, small-and medium-sized enterprises, and cooperatives.
