Ever since the presidency of Franklin D Roosevelt, the first 100 days of a new president is viewed as a benchmark to assess his/her job performance. President Joe Biden took office at a time of immense challenges both at home and abroad; while President Biden pledged to restore the soul of America, the country remains deeply divided along ideological lines between different political tribes, race and class. The Covid-19 pandemic has further exacerbated the situation. On the international front, geopolitical tensions between US and China, and among Asian countries could disrupt global trade and hamper economic recovery in post Covid-19.
The US presidency has far reaching implications for the global market, especial the APAC region. What were President Biden's major legislative achievements during the first 100 days? How will the domestic agendas shape his Indo-Pacific strategy and policy toward China? How his 'middle class foreign policy' impact trade in Asia?
Elaine Kamarck, senior fellow from Brookings and Deborah Elms, Founder and Executive Director of the Asian Trade Centre will discuss President Biden's policy priorities and implications for Asia.
