USTR Tai to Join White House Competition Council


The Office of the United States Trade Representative and the National Economic Council today announced the appointment of United States Trade Representative Katherine Tai to the White House Competition Council.
In July 2021, President Biden signed an Executive Order on Promoting Competition in the American Economy, which created the Competition Council and instructed federal agencies to identify ways to promote competition in all aspects of the U.S. economy.
 Ambassador Katherine Tai said. “Our new approach to trade prioritizes fair competition in the global economy to reduce vulnerabilities and supply chain chokepoints and reverse the race to the bottom. We are integrating these objectives into our bilateral and plurilateral negotiations. I look forward to working with the Competition Council to ensure that trade policy supports President Biden’s goal of building our economy from the middle out and the bottom up.”
The Council is chaired by Assistant to the President for Economic Policy and Director of the National Economic Council, Lael Brainard, and includes members of the President’s Cabinet and leaders from across the federal government.
The White House Competition Council has held five meetings to date, including the most recent gathering in July 2023.
