TAGS: ETRD WTRO ECON VM
SUBJECT: DEMARCHE TO VIETNAM ON TAFT GOODS PROPOSAL

REF: STATE 12905

1. (SBU) On February 13, Econ Counselor demarched the Government of
Vietnam on labeling for textile, apparel, footwear, and travel
(TAFT) goods (reftel) through Nguyen Hong Duong, Deputy Director of
the Americas Department of the Ministry of Industry and Trade. We
gave Duong a copy of the U.S./EC TAFT proposal "Market Access for
Non-Agricultural Products," linked in Reftel.

2. (SBU) Duong said that he was familiar with the issue, and would
share the proposal and the communication with his counterparts in
the European and Import-Export departments in MOIT. He offered no
definite response.

3. (SBU) The EU representative in charge of economic affairs is not
in Hanoi, but we have been in contact with him, and will confer with
him upon his return about any further action here on the joint U.S./
EU proposal.
