Despite the globalUpswing in Vietnam - US trade economic downturn, Vietnam – US trade continues to pick up steadily, according to Do Thanh Hong, director of the Vietnam Trade Promotion Agency (Vietrade) in New York.

Over the past three years, bilateral trade turnover has increased by 40 percent and the US remains Vietnam’s largest importer.

Hong said the volume of key items exported to the US market is expected to grow steadily in the near future.

This year, Vietrade has pushed up trade promotion through meetings with the US business community, market surveys and trade fairs in New York and eastern states of the US.

Vietrade has co-ordinated with relevant agencies under the Ministry of Industry and Trade to help the US organise seminars to introduce the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) to Vietnamese businesses and measures to penetrate the American market.

Vietrade has also helped remove barriers to imports from Vietnam in the hope that Vietnam-US trade turnover will increase sharply as expected.
