This article presents information about Vietnam's negotiations to join the World Trade Organization (WTO). Vietnam is making a determined last effort to meet its self imposed target for entry of January 1, 2005. Despite this, the chances that Vietnam will be ready are looking increasingly slim, with the WTO itself saying that Vietnam needed a quantum jump if it is to be prepared in time. Remaining outside the global trade body would have huge negative consequences for the Vietnamese economy.
