Also on Monday, Asia Sentinel posted an article by former American diplomat David Brown, saying that Washington and Hanoi had forged a strategic entente during the Obama years. Though President Trump has ripped up the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the two countries might agree to explore a bilateral trade pact that would entail many TPP-like reforms. Bilateral talks will be at the top of Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s agenda during his visit toWashington, Brown said.

Dr. Jonathan D. London, Lecturer of Global Political Economy – Asia at Leiden University in the Netherlands, commented that the visit is of great importance, not only for what it portends with respect to the development of US-Vietnam bilateral relations and the future prospects of Vietnam’s development, but for the White House’s intentions with respect to East Asia. In an article run by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), London said Vietnam and the US have a great deal to gain from a strong relationship because defense and trade are two of the states’ interests.
