US newspaper: US, Vietnam working to resolve trade issues hinh anh 1

The US and Vietnam are working to resolve trade issues to pre-empt the imposition of Section 301 tariffs, the article reported, citing a source familiar with the Office of the US Trade Representative (USTR)’s twin investigations into Vietnamese trade practices.

USTR in October launched Section 301 investigations into Vietnam’s currency valuation and timber practices. After holding hearings for each last week, USTR gave interested parties the opportunity to submit post-hearing comments.

The Inside US Trade learned that the US Trade Representative Office has less than two weeks until the new president’s inauguration ceremony on January 20 to complete the investigation process, followed by a proposal submitted to the Presidential Office and an open hearing on the proposal.

The article also mentioned the phone talks between Vietnamese Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Pham Binh Minh and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, as well as the phone talks between Vietnamese Minister of Industry and Trade Tran Tuan Anh and US Trade Representative (USTR) Robert Lighthizer.

 

Anh said the investigation could cause many unwanted effects that may not only harm bilateral relations, strategic trust, and efforts to enhance cooperation but also adversely affect thousands of enterprises and millions of workers and consumers in both Vietnam and the US.

Lighthizer said the USTR Office is still in the investigation process and considering all opinions, and has yet to talk about any conclusions with Vietnam.

In related news, more than 150 companies and 50 associations have sent a joint letter to President Donald Trump, asking for not imposing Section 301 tariffs on Vietnamese goods, saying that it may hamper the US global competitiveness and US businesses and consumers alike in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

They said Vietnam remained a large export market of the US and an important supplier of raw materials for US manufacturers./.VNA
