Vietnam’s Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh is actively pursuing stronger financial and technological connections with the United States following the current upgrade of diplomatic relations involving the two nations. For the duration of his go to to America, Chinh met with US Trade Representative Katherine Tai in Washington to talk about the designation of Vietnam as a marketplace economy by the US. The Vietnamese government’s internet site stated Chinh’s want for a prompt selection on this matter. The US responded by agreeing to swiftly think about the request, as confirmed for the duration of President Joe Biden’s current go to to Hanoi. Presently, Vietnam is classified as a “non-marketplace economy” by the US, which can pose challenges for Vietnamese exporters involved in anti-dumping investigations.
