NEW YORK, July 19, 2023 – The Asia Society Policy Institute (ASPI) on Wednesday announced the appointment of Daniel Ikenson as its new Director of Trade, Investment and Innovation based in its Washington, D.C. office.
Mr. Ikenson will be a key part of the ASPI trade team as it navigates supply chain matters, economic security issues and regional trade trends and policies. He was most recently director of the Cato Institute’s Center for Trade Policy Studies, where he led a team of lawyers, economists and political scientists researching trade and investment policy.
Mr. Ikenson has authored dozens of policy papers, given congressional testimony, spoken at international conferences, appeared on national news programs and published scores of articles in prominent U.S. and Asian publications on issues such as U.S.-China relations, free trade agreements, international investment treaties, supply chain interdependence, industrial policy, the World Trade Organization, and trade remedy laws. He is also co-author of the book “Antidumping Exposed: The Devilish Details of Unfair Trade Law.” He holds an M.A. in economics from George Washington University.
“Dan will be a great addition to our trade team, thanks to his extensive track record of working with stakeholders and creating policy impact. With the economic security agenda becoming a focal point for many in the US and Asia, we are delighted to welcome him to ASPI,” said Wendy Cutler, ASPI’s Vice President and Managing Director of its DC office.
