President-elect Joe Biden announced on Dec. 10 that he will appoint Katherine Tai, a Taiwanese American, as U.S. trade representative, a position that is subject to Senate confirmation.
Before joining USTR, Tai worked in the international trade departments in various Washington, D.C. law firms.
“I am very proud to be an advocate for American workers, to stand up for their ingenuity and innovation, and for Americans’ interest across the globe.
Her invaluable expertise and experience will help guide our trade policy forward.”House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.)
That’s why I am pleased that President-elect Biden has chosen Katherine Tai to be the next U.S. trade representative.
