The Vice President’s Trip to Asia

The Vice President's Trip to Asia 2011

Vice President Joe Biden's trip to China, Mongolia and Japan in August 2011 was part of the administration's dedicated effort to renew and intensify the U.S. role in Asia.

From establishing new channels of communication with Chinese leaders, to praising Mongolia's 22 years of democracy, to expressing continued support for the recovery of longtime ally, and friend, Japan, the trip was a reflection of our belief that the U.S. is a Pacific power whose interests are inextricably linked with Asia’s economic security and political order.
