In a move reflecting a desire to break with the past and become more inclusive, a local chamber of commerce has changed its name. The Vietnamese Chamber of Commerce in Orange County has become the Vietnamese-American Chamber of Commerce in Orange County. The name change represents both a coming of age for the local Vietnamese population and an attempt to broaden the organization's appeal, said Co D.L. Pham., the chamber's president.

Those questions are being raised in Westminster by city officials who are planning to meet with Vietnamese restaurant and grocery store owners and public health officials as early as next week.

President Clinton's announcement loosening restrictions on lending to Vietnam was being widely viewed by the Vietnamese-American community Friday as a logical, albeit risky, step toward normalization of relations.
