Vietnam's economy grows 6.8% in 2010, govt says

Vietnam's government says the country's economy grew 6.8 percent this year as inflation hit double digits.
The General Statistics Office says the strong growth was driven by a rise in exports, industrial outputs, services and investments.
Last year, the communist country's economy grew 5.3 percent _ the slowest pace in a decade.
The General Statistics Office said in a statement Wednesday that inflation increased to 11.5 percent this year, up from 6.9 percent last year, while the trade deficit increased to $12.4 billion, slightly up from $12.1 billion last year.
Vietnam's economy faces challenges as the country battles currency woes. The dong plunged to an all-time low earlier this month on the black market.
