U.S. Woos Asia

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross has been busy leading a trade mission in Asia and attended a regional summit on Monday.

Ross says the U.S. will invest and trade more in Asia and has rolled out an American plan to support “sustainable” projects there.

The plan is reportedly meant to rival China’s own multibillion-dollar “Belt and Road” infrastructure program, meanwhile, President Xi Jinping has vowed to open Chinese markets further.
