House Majority Leader Eric Cantor today announced that he will lead a bipartisan Congressional delegation to the Asia-Pacific from April 18-27. Members will meet with key leaders in Japan, South Korea, and China to discuss economic growth and trade, regional security challenges, and strengthening our alliances in the region.
Majority Leader Cantor said, "While the situation in the Middle East continues to deteriorate and Russia's aggression against Ukraine has raised new concerns about security in Europe, the United States must also remain engaged in promoting peace and stability in Asia. Our investment in Asia's future is an investment in our own prosperity. I look forward to a productive dialogue with Japanese, Korean, and Chinese leaders about the importance of free trade and free markets, as well as our shared interests in promoting stability in the region and confronting North Korean provocations."
