The article presents a risk summary of Vietnam, as of January 2004. A U.S. Navy frigate had been moored in the former South Vietnamese capital of Saigon in November 2003, the first such visit since the end of the Vietnam war over three decades ago. The historic visit of the U.S. ship came just a week after Vietnamese Defence Minister Pham Van Tra made a landmark trip to Washington D.C. for talks with his U.S. counterpart, Donald Rumsfeld. The International Monetary Fund in its annual review of Vietnam's economy said it expects growth to average 7% a year over the medium term.
