Hanoi’s GDP increases by 3.6 percent in the first six months

In the first half of this year, Hanoi’s gross domestic product (GDP) saw an increase of 3.6 percent compared to the same period last year, according to the Hanoi Statistics Department.

The department says the added value in the industrial and construction sector rose by 4.2 percent, while the service sector posted an increase of 4.5 percent from a year ago. However, the added value in the agro-forestry and aquaculture sector fell by 5.6 percent.

Due to a 20-percent increase in the minimum wage from May 2009, administrative State agencies in education, culture and health care recorded a rapid growth in the reviewed period./. (VOV )
