SINGAPORE -- U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo on Thursday said the new economic framework that her country plans to launch for Indo-Pacific will be "flexible and inclusive," concluding a trip to Asia designed to help Washington deepen ties with the region.

Speaking in a media teleconference from Kuala Lumpur -- the last stop of her four-day regional tour after Tokyo and Singapore -- Raimondo said the new framework will focus on areas including supply chain, digital economy and infrastructure. "We intend for the framework to be flexible and inclusive so that many different countries can participate."
