The North Vietnamese economy continues to limb along, perhaps with less difficulty than before. Distribution of imports and internal traffic have achieved sufficient flexibility to partially ease the distribution problems. The viability of the economy will probably be enhanced by recent extensions of Bloc assistance. The transport system probably carried as much tonnage during 1965 as it did during 1964. In the southern DRV, increasing quantities of supplies are being moved in spite of transportation difficulties. There continues to be no indication of any significant decline in North Vietnamese morale. Intelligence indicates that the training and infiltration of personnel into South Vietnam has continued during the pause in US arstrikes.
