Congratulations to my friend and partner, Dr. Kurt Campbell on his appointment as the Deputy Assistant to the President and Coordinator for Indo-Pacific Affairs on the National Security Council. He has recently served as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Asia Group.
At this challenging time in our nation’s history, Kurt’s decision to support President Biden and Vice President Harris in crafting U.S. strategy and advancing U.S. interests in Asia is commendable. This appointment is a clear signal that the U.S. foreign policy with China will return to a less emotional and more rational state. I have worked alongside Kurt for many years and am confident he will help advance U.S. interests in the Indo-Pacific region.
