Biden's Asia policy

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

Bilateral free trade agreement with Japan should be first focus, Rob Portman says

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.
