Vietnam's Agri-Food Sector and the Trans-Pacific Partnership

This report examines Vietnam's agri-food sector and its trade with Trans-Pacific Partnership partners. Vietnam's current trade agreements would overlap with the TPP. Vietnam's already low tariff rates on animal feed and commodities for industrial inputs do not provide significant import opportunities, but consumer-oriented imports could gain from the TPP.
