Opportunity stands before Trump in AsiaA year after his election, U.S. President Donald Trump is making his first official visit to Asia. A large group of U.S. corporate leaders will accompany Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross to China, where they will seek to strike deals, promote open markets and address abuses in bilateral trade.Politically, Trump stands to gain much more by leading the way toward a new multilateral free trade agreement than he would by pursuing isolationism and allowing China to assume trade leadership in Asia.And Trump has a golden opportunity to do so. Earlier this year, Trump praised China for making promises on this front, even though it had already made – and broken – the same promises to the Obama administration.Trump should seize this moment to secure greater cooperation from China in tackling, along with South Korea, the North Korean threat.
