2. Evaluation of the FDI performance in the seven months of 2022

- The realised investment capital of foreign investment projects in the first seven months of 2022 achieved the highest increase since the beginning of the year, up 10.2% compared to the same period in 2021 and over 1.3 percentage point compared to the first six months. That shows that enterprises are constantly recovering, maintaining and expanding production and business activities.

- Adjusted capital of foreign investors in the first seven months of 2022 slightly decreased over the same period but continued to bounced compared to the previous months. Although the number of projects registering to adjust investment capital increased slower compared to the first five months, the scale of adjusted capital per project was high compared to the same period last year. Many projects of manufacturing electronic and high-tech products expanded large-scale capital in the first seven months of the year. The increase of adjusted investment capital shows that foreign investors continue to believe in the economy and investment environment of Vietnam, making decisions to expand their projects. However, it reflects the impact of inflation and rising prices due to political and trade conflict in the world.

- Newly registered investment capital continued to decreased but it was improved. Newly registered capital decreased sharply from January to April but it increased in May to July by 12.8%, 14.6% and 34.6%, respectively, over the same period. However, it happens because the newly registered capital of May and June in 2021 was sharply reduced by anti-pandemic measures in 2021. Newly registered capital tends to ascend in 2022 but the rate is not high as expected.

- Export of the FDI sector increased in the first seven months of 2022 and higher than the first six months. The FDI sector offsetting the trade deficit of domestic business sector, help the country to gain a trade surplus of approximately 0.24 billion USD in the first seven months of 2022 instead of a trade deficit of 0.6 billion USD in the six months of 2022.
