Washington, D.C. – Starting today, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul will be leading a congressional delegation (CODEL) to meet with allies and partners in the Indo-Pacific. The bipartisan delegation includes Rep. Young Kim (R-CA), Chairwoman of the Subcommittee on the Indo-Pacific, Rep. Ami Bera (D-CA), Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on the Indo-Pacific, along with Rep. French Hill (R-AR), Rep. Madeleine Dean (D-PA), Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA), Rep. Mike Waltz (R-FL), Rep. Michael Lawler (R-NY), and Rep. Nathaniel Moran (R-TX). The delegation will travel to East Asia where they will meet with government officials and U.S. military personnel stationed in the region. 

 “We are confronting a generational threat from the Chinese Communist Party, and the Indo-Pacific theater is our first line of defense against their encroachment,” stated Chairman McCaul. “That’s why now, more than ever, it’s critical the United States strengthen relationships with our allies and partners in the region. I look forward to our engagements and learning what more the United States can do to ensure the balance of power in the region and beyond is not further disrupted.”
