USA's foreign trade with Viet Nam, exports to Viet Nam and imports from Viet Nam in November 2021


The text of the following analysis is produced by a computer program. The program is a test version and its rule base at this stage is still quite limited.

Trade with Viet Nam represented in November of 2021, 2.5 per cent share of USA's foreign trade in goods, 0.6 % of USA's exports and 3.6 % of imports. In November Viet Nam was USA's seventh most important foreign trade partner. Improvement from the previous month was 3 places. Most of the value of trade between the countries consists of the import to USA. Amounting trade to worth of $10.3 billion was 18.1 per cent bigger than in November of the previous year. In November the trade balance with Viet Nam was $8.5 billion in deficit for United States of America.

The value of imports from Viet Nam was 19.1 per cent higher than in November of the previous year, thus amounting to $9.4 billion. Major product categories of imports from Viet Nam were Sitc764 (telecommunications equipment, n.e.s., and parts, n.e.s., and accessories of apparatus falling within division 76), representing 35.9 percent of imports, Sitc821 (furniture and parts thereof; bedding, mattresses, mattress supports, cushions and similar stuffed furnishings) 4.8 % and Sitc776 (thermionic, cold cathode or photo-cathode valves and tubes (e.g., vacuum or vapour or gas-filled valves and tubes, mercury arc rectifying valves and tubes, cathode-ray tubes, television camera tubes); diodes, transistors and similar semiconductor dev) 4.8 % of the imports.

The value of exports to Viet Nam were 9.2 percent higher than in November of the previous year, thus amounting to $894 million. The largest product groups of exports were: Sitc776 (thermionic, cold cathode or photo-cathode valves and tubes (e.g., vacuum or vapour or gas-filled valves and tubes, mercury arc rectifying valves and tubes, cathode-ray tubes, television camera tubes); diodes, transistors and similar semiconductor dev), which represented a share of 8.9 per cent of total exports, Sitc764 (telecommunications equipment, n.e.s., and parts, n.e.s., and accessories of apparatus falling within division 76) 8.3 % and Sitc222 (oil-seeds and oleaginous fruits of a kind used for the extraction of *soft* fixed vegetable oils (excluding flours and meals)) 7.4 % of the exports.

Significant increase in trade in goods in early 2021

During January-November, trade in goods with Viet Nam has grown faster than USA's trade in goods with the rest of the world. During this year trade in goods between countries was significantly higher than in January-November of the previous year. Growth was as high as 25.2 per cent and the value of the trade increased to $102.3 billion. During January-November the value of imports was $92.3 billion. The export value was $10.0 billion. Compared to the corresponding period of the previous year, the value of imports increased by 27.0 % and the value of exports by 11.1 %. The largest product group in terms of imports has been Sitc764 (telecommunications equipment, n.e.s., and parts, n.e.s., and accessories of apparatus falling within division 76), worth $19.7 billion. In export the largest value had Sitc263 (cotton), worth being $964 million. From USA's point of view, the trade balance between the countries in January-November remained in deficit. The trade deficit was $82.4 billion. The trade deficit continued to widen compared to the corresponding period in 2020. At that time, the deficit was $63.7 billion.
