This 2005 Article IV Consultation for Vietnam reports that high credit growth in the context of weak bank balance sheets remains a cause for concern. The overall fiscal deficit narrowed from 7.2 percent of GDP in 2003 to 4½ percent of GDP in 2004, but a growing program of off-budget operations has weakened fiscal transparency and heightened concerns about medium-term debt sustainability. Improvements in the reliability, timeliness, and dissemination of key data are urgently needed to enhance the quality of policy analysis and surveillance.
