Vietnam’s private sector continued to show strong growth with the compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) among private firms rising significantly, reaching 21.8 per cent in the 2014-17 period.

This information was included in the recently released VNR500 Ranking for 2018, which ranks the top 500 largest businesses in the country and is compiled by Việt Nam Report. This is the 12th consecutive year that the VNR500 has been announced to honour the achievements of Việt Nam’s most successful enterprises. Việt Nam Report also announced the top 500 largest private enterprises.

The five sectors that contributed the most revenue to the 500 largest companies were finance (15.1 per cent); food, beverages and cigarettes (14.3 per cent); construction, building materials and real estate (13.9 per cent); steel (11.7 per cent) and telecommunications and information technology (9.2 per cent). These five sectors accounted for 64.2 per cent of total revenue and 75.5 per cent of the net profit of the 500 enterprises on the list.

A recent statistic from the General Statistics Office showed a significant contribution by the private sector. The figures calculated at year-end 2016 showed that private sector enterprises generated US$420.3 billion in revenue, accounting for 56 percent of the economy’s total revenue in 2016, while State-owned enterprises generated only VNĐ2,880 trillion, accounting for 16 per cent of the total. In terms of profit, the private sector generated more than VNĐ188 trillion, accounting for 26.4 per cent of the total profit of all enterprises, while SOEs generated more than VNĐ197 trillion, accounting for 27.7 per cent. The remaining 45.9 per cent of profit was generated by other economic sectors.

The ranking also saw a positive change in the economic structure. Over the past few years, the proportion of revenue from large enterprises in the service and industrial sectors has increased significantly.

There were also positive changes within the sectors. For the industrial sector, product structures are changing to better meet market needs. The processing industry increased its revenue proportion while the mining industry decreased. In 2018, the processing industry accounted for 43.7 per cent of the industrial sector’s revenue in the VNR500 ranking while the mining industry accounted for 12 per cent.

A ceremony for the rankings is scheduled for January 16, 2019 at the Rex Hotel in HCM City.
