U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo to Lead President’s Export Council Trip to Thailand 

U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo will lead members of the President’s Export Council (PEC) to Bangkok, Thailand from March 13 to March 14, 2024, to identify opportunities for the United States and Thailand to strengthen economic relationships across a number of critical issues, including manufacturing, supply chain resiliency, artificial intelligence, and clean technology. Raimondo participated in a PEC meeting in Washington, DC in November 2023, where she announced her intention to lead a fact-finding trip with PEC members to the Indo-Pacific, as well as plans to re-establish the President’s Export Council Subcommittee on Export Administration (PECSEA), which has since been formally launched.

In addition to bilateral meetings and engagements with stakeholders, while in Bangkok, Raimondo will participate in a hybrid Indo-Pacific Economic Framework for Prosperity (IPEF) Ministerial with IPEF partners. The IPEF Ministerial will be the first since the substantial conclusion of negotiations for the proposed IPEF Clean Economy Agreement, Fair Economy Agreement, and overarching Agreement on IPEF, as well as the signing ceremony for the IPEF Supply Chain Agreement in November of 2023.

Raimondo’s travel to Bangkok will follow her leading a Presidential Trade and Investment Mission to Manila, Philippines, from March 11 to March 12, 2024, on behalf of President Biden.
