Secretary of State John Kerry spent the afternoon of December 14 at the American Center in Ho Chi Minh City. He met with alumni and faculty of the Fulbright Economics Teaching program, the prestigious in-country public administration master’s degree program supported by Harvard University and the Department of State, witnessed the signing of a $94 million sustainable energy deal between U.S. company GE and Vietnamese company Cong Ly, and learned about Vietnamese start-ups and U.S. companies doing innovative business in Vietnam. In his remarks to the audience of businesspeople, students, and others, Secretary Kerry talked about the changed relationship between the United States and Vietnam, noting, “with the right focus on the openness and freedom of the society, with the right respect for people and their rights, and with the right focus on growth and education, there is no question in my mind that all of that energy and all of that effort invested in trying to set this new direction is going to pay off big-time.”
