ASPI’s AsiaConnect is a telephone briefing series on pressing issues in Asia and U.S.-Asia relations, made possible through the generous support of Asia Society Trustee Mitch Julis.
Wendy Cutler joins the Asia Society on November 2, 2015, as head of its Washington, D.C. office and Vice President of the Asia Society Policy Institute (ASPI), following a long and illustrious career as a diplomat and negotiator in the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR). Most recently she served as Acting Deputy U.S. Trade Representative; in that capacity she was responsible for the just-concluded Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement, including the bilateral negotiations with Japan. Ms. Cutler’s nearly three-decade tenure at USTR focused primarily on strengthening trade ties with Asian partners and recognizing that strong economic relations contribute to peace and prosperity in the region. Her accomplishments — beyond the TPP — have included successfully negotiating the U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement, updating the U.S.-China Joint Commission on Commerce and Trade (JCCT), and rendering the trade agenda of APEC more relevant and robust.
