U.S. Business Predicts Strong Future for Relations with Vietnam

(Hanoi) A delegation of senior executives from 29 leading U.S. companies organized by the US-ASEAN Business Council (“Council”) is in Vietnam this week for high level meetings with the Vietnamese government focused on supporting Vietnam’s economic restructuring efforts and encouraging reforms which will make Vietnam an even more attractive destination for business and investment.  The delegates will offer ideas for how Vietnam can deepen the involvement of stakeholders and improve its consultative processes in policy development, and their support for Vietnam’s efforts in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), as well as reinforce how the ASEAN Economic Community is crucial to American business. The delegation was led by Stuart Dean, Chief Executive Officer for GE ASEAN and Council President and CEO Alexander Feldman.
“This year marks the 20th anniversary of bilateral relations between the United States and Vietnam,” said Council President Alexander Feldman. “Two way trade between the US and Vietnam tops $35 billion annually, and has been growing steadily. Vietnam exports more goods to the U.S. than any other ASEAN country, with more than $30 billion in exports in 2014 alone – an incredible achievement in just 20 years.  This is a direct result of the efforts of Vietnam’s government to continually reform its economy and create an investment friendly business environment.  However, as Vietnam continues to grow, it will be increasingly important to provide a business environment that embraces the development of technology and innovation in Vietnam and includes the ability for data to flow freely across borders as well as within the country.”
“TPP will be critical for Vietnam, and its future growth,” Stuart Dean, CEO of GE ASEAN stated.   “We are encouraged by our conversations with the government of Vietnam and the mutual recognition that finalizing TPP is a high priority.”
Companies participating on the delegation include 3M, AES, AIG, Apple, Autodesk, Caterpillar, The Coca-Cola Company, Dow Chemical Company, eBay, ExxonMobil, Ford Motor Company, General Electric, GlaxoSmithKline, Google, Halliburton, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Johnson & Johnson, MasterCard, Mead Johnson Nutrition, Monsanto, Qualcomm, Suntory PepsiCo, Time Warner, UL, UPS, Visa and Westinghouse Electric.

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
