Vietnam remains one of the fastest-growing markets for U.S. food and agricultural products, with U.S. exports there totaling a record $2.2 billion in fiscal year 2014. That's a 508 percent increase from 2009, the year Vietnam joined the World Trade Organization, and an 8 percent increase from the previous 2013 record. Vietnam now ranks as the United States’ 11th-largest agricultural export market, with top products including cotton, dairy, soybeans, and tree nuts.

Vietnam is participating in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations, offering further opportunities to break down trade barriers and expand market access for U.S. food and agricultural products.
