The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement signed by the end of this year by 11 nations including Vietnam, will bring benefits as well as challenges to the countries. Vietnam would be the largest beneficiary on the TPP track. Participation would increase Vietnam’s GDP by 13.6% compared with the “baseline scenario.” Five factors explain this result: strong trade with the United States; high protection abroad against apparel and footwear, which are Vietnam’s principal exports; strong competitive positions in these and othe manufacturing industries where China’s comparative advantage is fading; high initial domestic protection; and powerful scale effects in Vietnam’s principal production clusters. The first three factors boost Vietnamese exports and terms of trade under the TPP. The last two amplify these benefits by stimulating productivity gains. Higher incomes in turn enable Vietnam to invest more and grow more rapidly.
