Ngoc asked whether Vietnam would become a threshold country. We
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
dollar amounts given to threshold and compact countries and the
various sources for the indicator scores. We left him with a copy
