Brexit to benefit UK's trade with Vietnam - Brexit, Britain's withdrawal from the EU, could prove to be beneficial for Vietnam. This is the belief held by Katie White, Head of Asia Pacific at the UK's Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

She talked about how the United Kingdom wishes to accelerate trade and economic collaboration with Vietnam after Brexit. At a function hosted by the British Embassy in Vietnam, White reiterated that Vietnam is one of the Asian countries with the most impressive growth and economic reform in Asia.

She sees this as grounds to expand collaboration between the 2 nations. She also reiterated the UK's commitment to trade with Vietnam, with proof being Ed Vaizey's appointment as Vietnam Trade Officer.
