After the world economic crisis in recent years, tight monetary policy in 2011 has helped Vietnam to stop inflation but caused aggregate demand to weaken. The economy fell into stagnation characterized as inventory increases, the growth rate of industrial production slow and some businesses closed are on the rise. According to the Ministry of Planning and Investment, over 50,000 businesses have gone into bankruptcy in early 2011 to the end of quarter 1/2012. Large losses in Vinalines, Vinashin, EVN, Vietnam Cement Corporation VICEM, Song Da Corporation, TKV ... somehow make it easier for the Vietnamese economy sinking into stagnation condition than ever before.
