WASHINGTON -- The Biden administration is seeking ways to enforce the rules in the new Indo-Pacific Economic Framework, U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai said, describing the initiative as "not a traditional trade agreement."

Trade is one pillar of the IPEF, which U.S. President Joe Biden kicked off on his recent trip to Asia. Strengthening supply chains, promoting infrastructure and clean energy, and fighting tax evasion and corruption will also be areas of cooperation for the U.S. and its Asian partners, according to the White House.
