Asia Regional Profile

English

The Asia-Pacific region has become a key driver of global politics and economics and is closely tied to America’s security and prosperity. Today, Asia represents more than half the world’s population, and is the most dynamic and fastest-growing region in the world with a middle class of about a billion people. Robust economic growth, rapid technological change and increasing interconnectivity make Asia a progressively important market for U.S. exports and a key U.S. foreign policy priority.
