The focus of US President Joe Biden's Asia trip is to reiterate his support for allies in the Indo-Pacific region, and to strengthen supply chain cooperation with countries in the Indo-Pacific region economically by establishing the "Indo-Pacific Economic Framework" (IPEF). Through the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (Quad) to deepen military cooperation with Japan, India and Australia, analysis shows that the United States plans to use the IPEF as the basis for supply chain and strategic cooperation with allies in the Indo-Pacific region in an attempt to decouple Chinese supply chains and strengthen India’s Pacific region cooperation.
Yang Yongming, a professor at the Department of Political Science at National Taiwan University, pointed out: "The Indo-Pacific strategy before last photo retouching service year lacked an economic strategic framework, which prompted Kurt Campbell, the coordinator for Indo-Pacific affairs of the United States, to think that it is necessary for the United States to build more practical cooperation with countries in the Indo-Pacific region, and then establish The establishment of IPEF.” The Biden administration's Indo-Pacific strategy pursues multilateralism, but the opinions of allies under multilateralism are extremely important.
At this stage, the United States has not shown too much in its intention to resist China in order to attract countries in the Indo-Pacific region to join the IPEF led by it. Why does the United States deny the possibility of Taiwan joining the IPEF? Although Biden did not visit China during his visit to Japan and South Korea this time, he had a phone call with Chinese President Xi Jinping before his visit to Asia. This can be interpreted as the United States building a guardrail between the competition between the United States and China, and trying its best to cooperate in the Indo-Pacific. Avoid overly stimulating China.
