The USTR Office on July 23 issued a formal determination in the Viet Nam Currency Section 301 investigation saying that the agreement reached between the US Department of the Treasury and the State Bank of Viet Nam provides a satisfactory resolution of the matter subject to investigation and accordingly that no trade action is warranted at this time.
