United States Trade Representative Katherine Tai is due to pay a visit to Hanoi, Vietnam on February 13-15, according to the U.S. Embassy in Hanoi.

Katherine Tai is scheduled to meet with Vietnamese government officials, labor stakeholders, and private sector representatives to discuss opportunities to boost cooperation.

The trip offers a chance to share the Biden administration’s priorities for the region, including the ongoing negotiations of the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF), said the U.S. Embassy.

Tai’s trip to Hanoi comes as the U.S. and Vietnam celebrate the 10th anniversary of the U.S.-Vietnam comprehensive partnership this year. 

The partnership, which was signed in 2013, has served to strengthen the overall bilateral relationship and deepen trade ties between both sides.

The Hanoi trip is part of Tai’s global working trip which will also include visits to Malaysia and Germany between February 13 and 19.

She is set to arrive in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on February 16.

While staying in Germany, she is expected to attend the 59th Munich Security Conference and discuss the Biden administration’s vision for a resilient multilateral international trading system that responds to the needs of people around the world.

Tai has been serving as the 19th United States Trade Representative since March 18, 2021.

A member of the Democratic Party, she previously served as the chief trade counsel for the United States House Committee on Ways and Means, where she played a significant role in the House’s negotiations regarding the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA).
