On February 4, 2008, the East-West Center and the U.S. Asia-Pacific Council held a Congressional Study Group on the Asia Pacific Economy entitled "New U.S. Trade Strategies in Southeast Asia." Barbara Weisel, Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for Southeast Asia and the Pacific, and Murray Hiebert, Senior Director for Southeast Asia, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, discussed the broader implications of the U.S. decision on February 4 to join negotiations on investment and financial services among Brunei, Chile, New Zealand, and Singapore--the so-called "P-4" group of countries.
