HCMC supports businesses to resume operation

As the latest Covid-19 outbreak becomes increasingly complicated in Vietnam, stricter and stricter social distancing regulations have been introduced to help cope with the situation. This, however, has also led to over 84,000 businesses going bankrupt in the first 8 months of 2021 due to disruptions in supply chain flow. Ho Chi Minh City, therefore, is now trying to implement flexible support policies to help existing businesses restart their work.
