Trump remains popular in Vietnam

Americans tend to think of Vietnam as a war that split the US rather than as a country in today’s world.

Under the leadership of ASEAN and China, most observers did not expect the RCEP to provide a high degree of openness, and the announced agreement lives up to these expectations, containing few surprises.
