WASHINGTON -- The Biden administration "is hoping to make a lot of progress this year" on the U.S.-led Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF), Deputy U.S. Trade Representative Sarah Bianchi said in an interview with Nikkei.

The goal is to quickly create shared rules for the region, particularly in the digital sector, and to regain the initiative in the U.S.-China contest for economic leadership in Asia.
