WASHINGTON — The news that the U.S. is investigating charges of illegal transshipping through Vietnam provoked a trade skirmish in the capital Tuesday between U.S. manufacturers and importers.
As reported, the U.S. Trade Representative’s office in Monday evening briefings told industry representatives that the U.S. was looking into claims that Vietnam’s import figures have been inflated as a result of the transshipment of goods that were actually made in China. Representatives of the domestic industry and importers who attended the briefings confirmed their content Tuesday, though USTR officials did not respond to inquiries.
