The article reports that diplomatic relations between America and Vietnam have warmed recently, amid expanding trade and a recent visit to the U.S. by Vietnam Prime Minister Phan Van Khai. Although a degree of mutual distrust lingers, U.S.-Vietnamese trade has surged from US$450 million in 1995 to US$6.4 billion in 2004, with the U.S. emerging as a key trading partner for the communist state, especially after the signing of a bilateral trade pact in 2001. Vietnam's trade ministry expects exports to the U.S. to total US$6.5 billion this year, mostly in the form of clothing, seafood produce and coffee.
