To compete and win in lucrative Asia-Pacific markets, America has some serious networking to do.

This infographic illustrates a key reason for the sharp drop in the U.S. share of this booming region’s imports: the fact that 16 of the region’s major economies are tied together by an extensive (and growing) network of regional trade agreements. The United States has far fewer of these deals in the region.

That’s why it’s vital that America forge new networks for our trade in the Asia-Pacific, beginning with market-opening trade deals like the TransPacific Partnership.
