Abstract: This paper theoretically explores the need for crafting a new framework for crafting a Vietnamese national competitive strategy, whether in international relations or business, rather than repetitively applying Western derived models from one culture to another. The recommendations for such a framework put forth herecall for the application of a new cross-cultural strategic model. Dilemma theory is introduced as a means for eliciting and resolving failed geo-political marketing strategies. The recommendations also provide professional practice a tool for synthesizing values between cultures to create a better strategy. The study further implies that transference of a Western model to Asia, specifically Vietnam, without integrating cultural differences first, will result in failed strategies. The originality of this article stems from the application ofan existing cross-cultural model of reconciliation to the field of international relations and global business strategy. The mindsets of Asia will undoubtedly conflict with the mindsets of the West. A tool has been provided for strategists, both business and diplomatic, to map out cultural differences as a means for making decisions that will allow enterprises in Vietnam to achieve a competitive advantage. This study maintains that by not building reconciliation into the strategy formulation process, the execution of a market strategy for growth will not be sustainable
