U.S. President Joe is expected to speak at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum in San Francisco, Calif., on Thursday. This comes a day after Biden and China’s Xi Jinping reached agreements on several key areas as they met on the summit sidelines in their first face-to-face meeting in a year, including curbing illicit fentanyl production and resuming military-to-military communications.
Biden and Xi also emerged with vows to stabilize their fraught relationship and showcase modest agreements to combat illegal fentanyl and re-establish military communications. The two leaders spent four hours together — in meetings, a working lunch and a garden stroll — intent on showing the world that while they are global economic competitors they’re not locked in a winner-take-all faceoff.
During Wednesday’s opening reception, Biden listed the challenges facing the world, including confronting the potential rewards and risks of artificial intelligence.
Biden will also spend time this week in California working to highlight new alliances in the Indo-Pacific and efforts to boost trade with other regional leaders.
