Deputy Minister Thang had a meeting with Assistant US Trade Representative (USTR) for Southeast Asia and the Pacific Sarah Elleman, within the framework of Vice State President Vo Thi Anh Xuan’s recent working visit to the US.

The two sides assessed the official upgrade of the Vietnam - US relations to a comprehensive strategic partnership on September 10, 2023, as a historic milestone in bilateral ties, in which economic and trade cooperation will continue to be an important driving force, playing a pioneer role in promoting common prosperity between the two countries.
Therefore, management agencies of the two countries in general and between the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Vietnam and the USTR Office in particular need to have more extensive collaboration activities to implement and realize the vision of high-ranking leaders, and set development goals commensurate with the comprehensive strategic partnership for the coming journey, they said.
She reiterated the need for relevant agencies of the US Government to have a substantive voice supporting the early removal of Vietnam from the non-market economy status, affirming that recognizing Vietnam as a market economy will allow Vietnamese businesses to be treated more fairly, without affecting the legal rights of the US domestic manufacturing sector.
Thang also had working meetings with the Presidents of the American Association of Exporters and Importers (AAEI) and the Asian American Chamber of Commerce (AACC).
