The U.S. and 13 other leading trading partners have been negotiating the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF) for the past year, with the hope of achieving breakthroughs and deliverables on key issues alongside the APEC Summit in San Francisco. Meaningful outcomes were achieved on the Commerce “pillars” of work, but the trade pillar lags behind and faces important challenges. Please join WITA and the Asia Society Policy Institute for an event to look at what was accomplished in San Francisco, what has yet to be achieved, and where IPEF may be heading from there.
