Amid mounting hardships, many firms remain upbeat about reaching their full-year business targets, possibly even earlier than scheduled.
Scores of businesses have already unveiled their second-quarter business results, with many showing healthy figures.
In the first half of this year, Hang Xanh Motors Service JSC (Haxaco) reaped $7.5 million in pre-tax profit, soaring 134 per cent on-year.
This year, the company aims to reach $9.2 million in its profit-before-tax target, meaning it has completed 81 per cent after just six months.
Haxaco’s board chairman Do Tien Dung unveiled that the company is committed to fulfilling its profit target in only nine months.
However, Dung is cautious saying that the auto trade relies heavily on macro factors like fuel price, inflation, and interest rates.

The auto industry is facing many challenges as customers find it harder to borrow after the central bank declined to loosen credit limits for banks and the scarcity of auto components continues.
“Haxaco avoids heavy reliance on bank capital sources. We have created several scenarios to mitigate the obstacles and secure sound business results by the end of the year and beyond,” said Dung.
Real estate developer Khai Hoan Land also posted a strong performance during the period.
The company eyed a 232 per cent jump in post-tax profit and a 150 per cent hike in revenue on-year, reaching almost $5.6 million and $21.7 million respectively.
“We believe we will surpass our full-year projection this year,” said Phung Quang Hai, the company’s deputy CEO.
