Chính quyền Trump đang mở một cuộc điều tra về các hoạt động thương mại của Việt Nam, khiến nước này phải chịu trách nhiệm về các hoạt động tiền tệ và viện dẫn cùng một luật thương mại mà Hoa Kỳ đã sử dụng để áp đặt thuế quan sâu rộng đối với hàng hóa nhập khẩu của Trung Quốc.

Văn phòng Đại diện Thương mại Hoa Kỳ vào tối thứ Sáu cho biết họ sẽ theo đuổi một cuộc điều tra về “các hành vi, chính sách và thực tiễn của Việt Nam có thể góp phần vào việc định giá thấp đồng tiền của nước này và hậu quả là gây hại cho Thương mại Hoa Kỳ”.

Phía Việt Nam hiện chưa đưa ra bình luận về vấn đề này.


U.S. to Investigate Vietnam for Currency Manipulation​

USTR actions could lead to tariffs under same law used to impose levies on Chinese imports​

The Trump administration is launching an investigation into the trade practices of Vietnam, faulting the country for currency practices and invoking the same trade law the U.S. used in imposing sweeping tariffs on Chinese imports.

The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative Friday evening said it would pursue an investigation into Vietnam’s “acts, policies, and practices that may contribute to the undervaluation of its currency and the resultant harm to U.S. Commerce.”

The USTR cited its authority under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974—the same legal justification that allowed the Trump administration to impose tariffs on around $370 billion a year of imports from China, the primary tool used in a U.S.-China trade face-off that has lasted more than two years.
In a statement, the USTR also said it would investigate Vietnam’s import and use of illegally harvested or traded timber. The investigation into lumber could be limited in scope. Lumber is an input in Vietnam’s burgeoning furniture manufacturers, but it isn’t a factor for Vietnam’s large textile or technology industries. An investigation into currency practices, however, potentially affects many items imported to the U.S. from Vietnam.

The Vietnam Trade Office in the U.S. didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Imports from Vietnam have grown rapidly in recent years, rising from $14.9 billion a decade ago to $66.6 billion last year, according to Commerce Department data. The country has been a popular destination for manufacturers looking to move out of China, either to avoid tariffs and other tensions between the U.S. and China or to seek lower labor costs.


“President Trump is firmly committed to combating unfair trade practices that harm America’s workers, businesses, farmers, and ranchers,“ said Robert Lighthizer, the president’s top trade adviser, in a statement. “Unfair currency practices can harm U.S. workers and businesses that compete with Vietnamese products that may be artificially lower-priced because of currency undervaluation.”

Before tariffs can be authorized, the U.S. must conduct an investigation, give the public time to comment and write a report—a process that takes months. In the case of the investigation into China, it took over six months to complete the report, and another three months before tariffs took effect. That means a decision on whether to move forward on tariffs against Vietnam will likely fall to whoever wins the U.S. presidential election in November.

The trade investigation is part of an intensifying U.S. critique of Vietnam’s management of its currency. In August, the Treasury Department determined that Vietnam took actions that led to its currency being depressed in 2019. That finding was part of a case in the trade-court system, filed by U.S. manufacturers of passenger-vehicle tires. It was the first test case of a Trump administration initiative to impose tariffs on countries for alleged currency manipulation. The case is ongoing. The Treasury Department’s determination paves the way for tariffs, but those tariffs would only have applied to passenger-vehicle tires.

The USTR’s action on Friday didn’t say what specific currency practices would be investigated, but when the Treasury Department examined the issue in the passenger-tire case, it said that the State Bank of Vietnam had depressed the exchange rate by purchasing $22 billion of foreign-exchange reserves. Such actions can make a country’s currency weaker, and therefore make its goods cheaper on international markets. The Treasury Department said Vietnam’s currency was undervalued by 4.7%.

In a response to the earlier trade court case, Vietnam’s trade minister Tran Tuan Anh disputed claims that Vietnam devalued its currency. In a letter filed as part of that case, he said that Vietnam has simply conducted normal monetary policies and that the policies are “not designed for the purpose of creating a competitive advantage for exports.”

Cái tội khôn lõi, tiếp tay cho bọn TQ xây nhà máy ở Việt Nam để lách thuế. Mịa, đã bảo mặt hàng nào thằng Mỹ nó áp thuế chống bán phá giá thằng Tàu thì cứ đánh thuế nó đi, vừa bảo vệ thị trường trong nước vừa hài lòng nó. Giờ thì chỉ hi vọng lúc nó điều tra, nó áp thuế mấy cái nhà máy lách thuế của Tàu thôi, nó mà áp thuế tổng thể thì bỏ mịa.

Lão Tạch có lần comment có ý đúng đấy: dòng chảy thương mại Mỹ-Trung quá dồi dào nên ko thể đột ngột khoá van cắt đứt bằng chiến tranh thương mại được. Ít nhiều nó cũng đã phải chuyển hướng trung gian qua VN để đổi lớp áo mới.

Quả này ngoại giao ko khéo léo với Nhà Trắng dễ vỡ mồm như chơi
