Trip Overview

Vice President Kamala Harris will travel to Singapore and Vietnam this month to strengthen relationships and expand economic cooperation with two critical Indo-Pacific partners of the United States. During the trip, the Vice President will engage the leaders of both governments on issues of mutual interest, including regional security, the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, and our joint efforts to promote a rules-based international order.
