[HANOI] Vietnam's economy has expanded an estimated 6.68 per cent in 2015, the fastest growth since 2007 and extending growth momentum that started in 2012, the government said on Saturday.

The annual growth rate exceeds a 6.55 per cent forecast by Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung early this month.

The Southeast Asian nation's economic growth has been accelerating every year since 2012, when it slipped to 5.25 per cent from 6.24 per cent the previous year.

The government has projected economic growth of 6.7 per cent next year.
