President Clinton Travels to Brunei and Vietnam
President Clinton will attend the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) 8th Economic Leaders Meeting November 15-16 in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei. The annual meeting will bring together the leaders of the 21 economies that comprise the APEC organization, which collectively account for nearly two-thirds of U.S. trade with the world. During the gathering, President Clinton will also hold bilateral meetings with several leaders to discuss issues of mutual concern.
Following the APEC meeting, the President will travel to Vietnam at the invitation of President Luong. He will address the range of issues we hope to advance with the people and government of Vietnam following the normalization of our ties with their country.
