The Ministry of Finance (MoF) revealed the figures at a press conference on September 29.
Upon breaking down, domestic revenue rose by 18.8% year on year during the period, and was equivalent to 88.9% of the estimate; revenue from crude oil reached 213% of the estimate, up 103.5%; and trade revenue hit 108.8% of the estimate, up 22.1%.
Given the positive revenue collection during the nine months, the Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI) forecast GDP growth of 7.75% for this year, high export performance, and rising oil prices while the MoF suggested the budget revenue for this year surpass the year’s target of VND1,410 trillion ($59 trillion).
The MoF expected key income sources from crude oil, trade, and land use rights, while revenue collection from environmental protection tax and state divestment at state-owned enterprises have been behind schedule.
The ministry attributed greater efficiency in budget management, especially in e-commerce and real estate transactions, supervision efforts against tax evasion, trade frauds, and the use of e-invoices, among the factors, to higher state budget revenue.
