Vietnam's trading ties with the United States and other countries.
Vietnam-US ties are burgeoning, and the United States is Vietnam’s largest export market.

- Hanoi will crack down on Chinese goods being shipped through Vietnam as a means of evading US tariffs.
- Vietnam will increasingly focus on trade accords that do not include the United States.
