EU-Vietnam finalize trade deal

My wife is from beautiful Bac Giang province in northern Vietnam and my many visits to the country have been overwhelmingly positive. So any news story linking my favourite country to my favourite topic merit a blog post.

The EU and Vietnam have finalized a trade and investment agreement. This is good news for both Europeans and Vietnamese. Relatedly, there have been a lot of interesting thoughts on how free trade can help strengthen liberalization efforts in countries like Vietnam that are transitioning away from a more authoritarian past.
