President Biden’s recent trip to the G-20 summit saw the United States being reasserted as a major player in global politics. From his discussions with foreign leaders to the implementation of new trade deals, the president was able to make an impact not only in the economy but in global affairs as well.
The president concluded his trip with a visit to the historic city of Ho Chi Minh, where he met with the foreign ministers of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The meeting focused on issues such as ASEAN’s role in global security, trade, and the further expansion of the United States diplomatic partnerships in the region. This was the first time that the president has visited Vietnam since taking office, and the president’s visit was seen as a signal that the United States is willing to expand its relations with this pivotal region in the Asian Pacific.
In addition to his visit to Vietnam, President Biden was also able to further strengthen ties with some of the United States’ most important allies during the trip. The president met with the leaders of Japan, South Korea, India, and the United Kingdom, and reaffirmed America’s commitment to these important partnerships.
The president was also able to make some progress in regards to the trade war between the United States and China. After the failed negotiations of the last few years, Biden was able to persuade Chinese President Xi Jinping to return to the table and negotiate in good faith. This is an important step in restoring US-China economic relations, and it’s hoped that the Biden administration can eventually come to a lasting agreement that will benefit both countries.
All in all, President Biden’s short visit to the G-20 summit was a success. He was able to make major strides in the United States’ relationship with key allies and in its economic relations with China. With his next trip being to Vietnam, it’s sure to be continued progress and a sign that the United States is back on the world stage.
