From the perspective of enterprises, there are many difficulties talking about, but the story now is how to overcome. This requires bravery, orientation, changes and determination of businesses and entrepreneurs. Since April, when the epidemic broke out, many businesses had lost the balance of cash flow due to a sharp decline in revenue, and banks also recalculated the efficiency of loan flow to businesses … making business operations more difficult. towel over.

The body of each enterprise must also restructure its operations, scale to suit the actual situation, and restructure the supply chain in domestic and foreign markets after being broken due to epidemics “- analyzed Mr. Nguyen Dang Hien.

He Le Viet Hai – Chairman of the Board of Directors of Hoa Binh Construction Group:
After a pandemic, opportunities will be found
In the Covid-9 translation, at first glance, construction companies may not see heavy damage, but in fact has been significantly affected by the decline in the tourism real estate segment. Many tourism real estate projects that are under construction are suspended or have to be constructed in moderation, and projects to be implemented are also stopped. While this is one of the main construction segments of Hoa Binh. The corporation’s workforce and output have been significantly reduced, but many of the costs that cannot be reduced in operating businesses are the biggest difficulty.
During the past time, we have prepared measures that are both suitable for long-term development and responding to the crisis. This is also an opportunity for the group to restructure all activities from products and services, markets, management systems, business models …
I am often optimistic that in “danger” there is “muscle”. In particular, after the Covid-19 pandemic, a new world order will be established and we will find opportunities for Vietnam in general and for Vietnam’s construction industry in particular when reaching the global market. . The current crisis has a global scale with a very serious level and unpredictable developments, but I believe that the spirit of Hoa Binh collective “Kite against the wind” will turn challenges into opportunities. If you achieve the title of typical enterprise in Ho Chi Minh City in 2020, it will be an encouraging reward for Hoa Binh and businesses who have made efforts to overcome difficulties in this challenging year.
