explained that the MCC Board selection meeting would take place in
December but noted that Vietnam's three below median "Ruling Justly"
indicator scores were a concern. Ngoc was also interested in the

various sources for the indicator scores. We left him with a copy
of the indicators and he thanked us for the information.
