Agriculture is a critical component of the vibrant trade between Australia and Vietnam.

While this trade relationship has recently witnessed some developments, the uncertain future of Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) has raised questions of how the two countries can overcome challenges and grasp opportunities without the US commitment to the regional trade.

Dr Dang will review major trends in the agricultural sectors of the two countries with some descriptive analyses.

In particular, Dr Dang will explain the main strengths and weaknesses of Vietnamese and Australian agriculture, and the similarities.

He will also introduce a new approach to trade and investment and provide policy recommendations.

The talk will be on Tuesday 21 March at midday at the Science Common Room, The University of Western Australia. To register: or for more information contact |
