Congresswoman Young Kim Smiling in a Red top and Black Blazer

Washington, DC— Starting today, U.S. Representative Young Kim (CA-40), chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Indo-Pacific, will join Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul on a bipartisan congressional delegation (CODEL) to meet with allies and partners in the Indo-Pacific. 

Along with Kim and McCaul, the bipartisan delegation includes Rep. Ami Bera (D-CA), Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on the Indo-Pacific, Rep. French Hill (R-AR), Rep. Madeleine Dean (D-PA), Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA), Rep. Mike Waltz (R-FL), Rep. Michael Lawler (R-NY), and Rep. Nathaniel Moran (R-TX). The delegation will travel to East Asia where they will meet with government officials and U.S. military personnel stationed in the region. 

“Our Indo-Pacific allies and partners are on the front lines of rising threats from the Chinese Communist Party and North Korea,” said Kim. “Strengthening our U.S. partnerships with our allies is vital to countering aggression and ensuring a world with values based on freedom over suppression. I look forward to productive conversations on addressing backlogged arms sales, advancing shared security priorities and promoting free trade in the region.” 

 “We are confronting a generational threat from the Chinese Communist Party, and the Indo-Pacific theater is our first line of defense against their encroachment,” stated Chairman McCaul. “That’s why now, more than ever, it’s critical the United States strengthen relationships with our allies and partners in the region. I look forward to our engagements and learning what more the United States can do to ensure the balance of power in the region and beyond is not further disrupted.”
