America’s security and prosperity are increasingly and inextricably linked to the Asia Pacific. Tomorrow, President Obama will head to Asia for the second time this year and his sixth time as President.
Deeply committed to our rebalancing strategy in Asia, the President will be meeting with leaders in China, Burma, and Australia to ensure that we are fostering an open, transparent security and economic order amid what is an increasing and already high demand for U.S. leadership in the region.
Our economic growth and creation of American jobs are also critically tied to our trade and investment ties to Asia. The President’s leadership in global fora, like the G20, has resulted in a more stable and resilient global financial system and collective agreement among the world’s largest economies to take meaningful actions to promote growth and quality jobs.
From talks with President Xi Jinping of China to the G20 Summit in Brisbane, Australia, here’s a look at what the President will be doing as he travels across the Asia Pacific next week:
