This week’s carnival of summitry continues with the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) ministerial meeting in Bangkok. While many leaders – including China’s President Xi Jinping – are continuing straight to Thailand from the G20 summit in Bali earlier this week, U.S. President Joe Biden won’t be there. Vice President Kamala Harris will stand in for him. 

The group’s first in-person meeting in four years is expected to focus on overcoming trade disruptions and supply chain problems amid the Ukraine crisis’s economic impact.
