AmChams of Asia Pacific (AAP) Washington DC Doorknock 2022
Join AMCHAM virtually on Friday, 5 August 2022 from 8:30 am - 10:00 am for our Members' Briefing. This edition will cover the recent AAP Washington D.C. Doorknock 2022 attended by AMCHAM's CEO Siobhan Das, Senior Executive, Government Relations & Committees, Elaine Wong, and delegates from 15 American Chambers of Commerce from the region.
AMCHAM was, for the first time, accompanied by member representatives of U.S. member companies who were able to provide direct insights for the officials to hear firsthand. Abdul Rahman Abu Haniffa, General Electric, David Mitchell of Boston Scientific, and Cash McCracken of Seagate Technology will share their impressions of the trip as well.
The Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF) was a key focus in many discussions, especially the challenges and opportunities that lie within the framework. The IPEF acts as a roadmap for the U.S to facilitate even greater economic connectivity within the region. In addition to the AAP program, AMCHAM also held direct meetings with representatives of the State Department, Department of Commerce, USTR, USTDA, CBP, and the NEC.
The 2022 U.S. Washington DC Doorknock was organized by the AmChams of Asia Pacific (AAP) and was led by Steve Okun, AAP Chair & Senior Advisor, McLarty Associates. It was the first in-person Doorknock since the COVID-19 pandemic started. The Doorknock is an annual event where the Chambers from AAP meet with the U.S. Government officials, Members of Congress and Senate, and other thought-leaders who help determine the future of U.S. policy towards the Asia Pacific region.
AmChams from the following countries were also represented: Australia, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Guam, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam and included their members from global corporates, SMEs and AmCham leaders.
