Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo to Join Economic Cooperation Talks in Asia, Represent Biden Administration at World Economic Forum in Switzerland


Today, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina M. Raimondo announced that she will join President Joseph R. Biden on his trip to the Republic of Korea and Japan to further deepen ties between our governments and economies to deliver for people at home and in the region. This trip will advance the Biden-Harris Administration’s rock-solid commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific and to U.S. treaty alliances with the Republic of Korea and Japan.

On May 20, Secretary Raimondo will arrive in Seoul, Republic of Korea, where she will join President Biden to discuss the future of economic cooperation between the United States and the Indo-Pacific region and emphasize the need for collaboration on semiconductors and opening up supply chains.

On May 22, she will continue her travel with President Biden and join him for important discussions with regional leaders and allies in Tokyo, Japan. She will also join President Biden for the launch of the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework which will tackle 21st-century economic challenges and deliver for the American people and people in the region.

On May 24, Secretary Raimondo will conclude her trip by representing the Biden Administration at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. While in Davos, she will highlight the role of the business community in deterring Russian aggression in Ukraine, as well as the need to reconsider the economic theory that created a global race to the bottom in manufacturing and supply chains. Raimondo will argue instead that business leaders should be focusing instead on creating economic conditions that will allow America’s workers and businesses to be more competitive.
