Vietnam among most optimistic countries on economic prosperity
WIN/Gallup International published its 40th End of Year Survey exploring outlook, expectations, views and beliefs of 66,541 people from 66 countries across the globe in 2016.
The 2016 edition includes Vietnam data representing the views of 700 respondents from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City interviewed face-to-face by market research company Indochina Research (Vietnam) Ltd, a member of WIN/Gallup.
The survey revealed that about 59% of the respondents are optimistic about the economic outlook for 2017, 12% are pessimistic and 26% believe the economy would remain the same.
When it comes to global economic outlook, despite much of the world largely remaining out of recession, economic optimism declined from twelve months ago. The study showed that 42% of the world is optimistic for the economic outlook in 2017, almost double (22%) of those who are pessimistic.
Net optimism (the percentage of those saying next year will be one of economic prosperity minus the percentage who say next year will be one of economic difficulty) has fallen from 23% to 20%.
Vietnam is also ranked the fourth happiest country in the world, following Fiji, China and the Philippines, the survey said, adding that 79% of the respondents answering they were happy and only 1% said they were unhappy.
