Deputy U.S. Trade Representative Demetrios Marantis met with officials of the Vietnamese government in Hanoi today to discuss the U.S.-Vietnamese economic relationship, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and bilateral market access issues. Arriving shortly after the installation of the new government, Marantis was the first foreign official to meet with Deputy Prime Minister Phuc. The two discussed the new government's economic agenda, issues related to the TPP and plans for the next round of negotiations to be held in Chicago in early September, as well as specific concerns related to bilateral goods, agricultural and services trade. Marantis also met with senior officials from the Ministries of Trade and Agriculture. He will continue his meetings in Hanoi on Tuesday and then travel to the ASEAN Economic Ministers meeting in Manado, Indonesia on Wednesday.
