As you know from the clothes you purchase, Vietnam is a low wage colony of the United States. Its top export purchaser is the United States, with $147 billion, 17% in exports, followed by China, at 11%. It calls itself a socialist market economy, a contradiction. See https://www.nrdc.org/onearth/made-vietnam

It just became a purchaser of American weapons, thanks to Democrat Obama. See https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2016/05/23/in-historic-move-u-s-lifts-arms-sales-embargo-to-vietnam/

This is not socialism; this is capitalism. The so-called Communist Party is and has been for at least 80 years, a chapter of the capitalist Democratic Party, twin of the Republican Party in its promotion of war and fascism, and is now a small private club.
