U.S. official comments on U.S. assistance strategy in Indo-Pacific

Nikkei ran a recent interview with Adam Boehler, the CEO of the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation (DFC). The paper wrote that the DFC chief expressed U.S. plans to concentrate its support to emerging nations’ infrastructure development in the high-tech sector, such as 5G and fiber networks, in line with the vision of a “free and open Indo-Pacific.” The paper wrote that Boehler reportedly said that it is important to provide emerging economies with options other than China. He also reportedly told the paper that he chose Tokyo as the destination of his first overseas trip as the DFC chief because coordination with Japan is critically important for the United States’ Indo-Pacific strategy.
