Asia House Corporate Members were updated on US trade policy in Asia today during a briefing with Dawn Shackleford, Assistant US Trade Representative for Southeast Asia and the Pacific.
In a comprehensive briefing, Shackleford covered a wide range of issues around US trade policy in the region, including its priorities for engagement and FTAs; Washington’s stance on the CPTPP; and the importance of Asia-Pacific trade for the US.
Asia House Corporate Members joined the digital discussion – chaired by Asia House Chief Executive Michael Lawrence – from around the world, with Shackleford taking an array of questions.
Topics raised with the Assistant USTR included the domestic and geopolitical factors shaping US trade policy in Asia; data localisation issues; and Washington’s plans for a new trade framework in the region. Shackleford was also asked for her views on the UK’s proposed accession to the CPTPP.
The off-the-record briefing was convened exclusively for members of the Asia House network.
