On this occasion, PM Phuc and President Trump discussed the United States Trade Representative (USTR)’s ongoing investigation of Vietnam's monetary policy and timber materials in accordance with Article 301 of the Trade Act of 1974.

The Government leader affirmed that Vietnam, as a developing country with limited economic capacity, has pursued a monetary policy in favor of inflation control and macro-economic stabilisation.

The monetary policy has not been designed to gain competitive edges in international trade, he stressed.

In that spirit, the two leaders agreed to assign their ministries and agencies to continue working together to comprehensively resolve the concerns of the US and Vietnam, thus sustaining harmonious, sustainable and mutually beneficiary trade ties.
