Abstract:

U.S.-Vietnam diplomatic and economic relations were non-existent for more than fifteen years following communist North Vietnams victory in 1975 over U.S. ally South Vietnam. Normalization of relations, particularly in the economic sphere, between the United States and unified Vietnam began in earnest in the 1990s. As the normalization process has proceeded, the U.S. has eliminated most of the Cold Warera restrictions on U.S. aid to Vietnam, and U.S. assistance has increased markedly from around 1 million when assistance was resumed in 1991 to nearly 50 million in FY2004.
