(Washington, DC) On January 15, the office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) released a report on the Section 301 investigation into Vietnam’s currency practices. The report details USTR’s findings of the investigation, concluding that Vietnam’s acts, policies, and practices related to currency valuation are unreasonable and burden American commerce. While USTR’s investigation supports a finding that Vietnam’s acts, policies, and practices are actionable under section 301 of the Trade Act, the report did not include any recommended actions or tariff guidelines.
