Biden's Asia policy

Ex-US trade chiefs pin high TPP hopes on Katherine Tai

Katherine Tai's predecessors from both sides of the aisle cited a need to reengage with the region following President Donald Trump's abandonment of the TPP, speaking out at an online panel hosted by the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies think tank.
