“U.S. Dept. of Commerce and Calculating "Fair" Values of Catfish Products Imported from Vietnam”
Oanh Le Hoang, J.D. Candidate 2015, UW School of Law

Hosted by the Asian Law Center and Washington Law Review

Oanh Le Hoang's upcoming comment for the Washington Law Review analyzes the reasonableness of the U.S. Department of Commerce's recent decision in selecting a surrogate country to calculate "fair" values of catfish products imported from Vietnam (which is considered by DOC to be a non-market economy) for the period between July 2010 and August 2011. Le decided to write about this topic following her trip to the Mekong Delta in Vietnam and observing people raising catfish, during her summer internship in Vietnam.

Oanh Le Hoang graduated from the Pacific Lutheran University in 2007 with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration (with a concentration in finance and minors in math and economics), and is interested in becoming an international business attorney after graduation. Prior to starting law school, Le worked as an intern, technical analyst, and, eventually, a client service associate at Russell Investments where she helped translate investment documents to and from Vietnamese. She also gathered information on Vietnam for the “Russell 20/20″ organization “which brings capital from leading institutional investors to emerging markets around the world.” Le was born and raised in Da Nang, Vietnam, and is fluent in Vietnamese.
