Tran Anh Tuan, deputy director of the Centre, said the projection anticipates a decline in the City and regions unemployment rate coupled with job growth of an estimated 40,000 jobs, which is great news.

The forecast reflects the ever-changing economic mix in the region, in conjunction with the emergence of new manufacturing, processing, hotel and hospitality jobs, which contribute to the positive trend, said Tuan.

It is encouraging to hear that jobs are expected to increase throughout 2017.

Roughly 1,800 companies in the City and surrounding region are expected to add more than 40,000 jobs, which reflects anticipated improved gross domestic product growth over last year.
