Vietnam protests?

There were TPPA protest marches in the weekend. Again. Repeating the same futility.

Will they switch their focus to protesting to against Vietnam trade? 3 News reports:

NZ and Vietnam to boost trade ties

Vietnam’s youthful population is growing wealthier by the day and New Zealand exporters look set to be able to cash in on it.

Prime Minister John Key is in Hanoi, where he’s leading a trade mission aimed at growing the relationship between the two countries.

Mr Key met with his Vietnamese counterpart Nguyen Tan Dung and the two leaders have agreed to increase trade and other bilateral links.

Among the new initiatives is a plan to maximise education links, as well as agreements to increase cooperation in the health and aviation sectors.

With an economy growing at 6.5 percent a year and a population of 90 million, Vietnam is a potential goldmine for New Zealand exporters.

In the five years between 2009 and 2014, two-way trade between New Zealand and Vietnam increased 120 percent, making it New Zealand’s fastest growing market in South East Asia.

Earlier this year New Zealand and Vietnam set a goal to double two-way trade to US$1.7 billion a year by 2020.

Vietnam is also a part of the Trans Pacific Partnership.
