Vietnam and Foreign Policy International Term Paper

Excerpt from Term Paper :

In addition the United States has provided many new products to be used for agricultural production so that the war torn fields can again become fruitful and prosperous (Adamson, 2002).

The infrastructure assistance provides the roadways so that the agricultural products can be transported into needed areas and crops can be transported out for sale and for export.

While helping the nation rebuild the roads and highways and bridges that were destroyed during the conflict the United States also has devoted time and funding to the development of the nation's communication system. Engineers, technical training and technical instruments have all been provided by the U.S. To Vietnam in the attempt to use the international strategy of development for the purpose of defining and carrying out the United States foreign policy toward Vietnam (Adamson, 2002).

DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS

The second international strategy being used by the United States for the purpose of implementing foreign policy with Vietnam is diplomacy. "As former foes Vietnam and the United States celebrated the 10th anniversary of the normalization of diplomatic relations, a senior U.S. official praised the progress in the relationship in Hanoi (DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS (http://news.monstersandcritics.com/asiapacific/article_1033314.php).

I think that during those 10 years, the countries have been able to understand each other and understand the issues a little bit better and we have been able to put in place a framework for us to move forward in a partnership of cooperation even better in the future," said Gordon Mansfield, Deputy Secretary of Veterans Affairs (DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS (http://news.monstersandcritics.com/asiapacific/article_1033314.php)."

When the trade agreement between the U.S. And Vietnam was enacted in 2001 it became more important than ever to use diplomatic relations to resolve any differences that might arise. The United States quickly became the biggest trading partner that Vietnam has. The trading between the two nations now exceeds $4 billion annually (DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS (http://news.monstersandcritics.com/asiapacific/article_1033314.php).

There are many issues of concern that still have to be worked through and discussed, but we have agreed that we will do that in a partnership, try to understand each other and move forward," Mansfield said at a press conference (DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS (http://news.monstersandcritics.com/asiapacific/article_1033314.php)."

This indicates the success and prudence in using a diplomatic approach as an international strategy to implement foreign policy.

BROAD FOREIGN POLICY

The United States does implement one broad foreign policy across the globe and that is the policy of educating the world about America and implementing American products, ideas and cultures in different countries.

This policy has been noted in many of the Asian nations and Vietnam is no exception. Today one can see McDonald's. The Gap and other American companies setting up shop in the cities of Vietnam and doing a huge business.

The broad policy is to globalize and make America less formidable and more user friendly for the world's nations.

This policy as well as the diplomatic and trade polices of the U.S. with regard to Vietnam have a measurable impact on the United States.

CONCLUSION

As the world continues to globalize the boundaries become less rigid. The U.S., as one of the strongest nations on earth has a social responsibility to use its foreign policy to promote peace and the betterment of all mankind. Working to help rebuild Vietnam, provide funding and technical assistance to that end and using diplomatic tactics to resolve differences is a positive step in that direction.
