The Biden administration has moved quickly to reverse some controversial policy decisions made by Donald Trump, especially on pandemic management, climate change and health insurance. A $1.9 trillion stimulus package could revive the COVID-19-battered US economy, with a positive influence on the global economy. A revival of US interest in trade pacts, and a more nuanced approach to the crucial US-China relationship could help to usher in a new era of globalisation. How will Washington handle the security implications of an assertive Beijing in Asia Pacific? How will this affect Asian economies and business? The Financial Times and Nikkei present an exclusive online discussion on the Biden administration’s policies as it nears its first 100 days in power, and the implications for Asia, post-pandemic.
