The article focuses on the business environment in Vietnam. The Vietnamese government is keen to attract foreign investment, and is making continued efforts to improve the country's operating environment in the hope of gaining entry into the World Trade Organisation (WTO) by 2005. Vietnam is still not a member of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), after failing to meet its own self-imposed deadline to join the global trading club by January 1 2005. Despite the threat of tariffs, Vietnam's exports to the US are booming following the free trade agreement signed between the two countries in December 2001.
