Congressional staff delegations and exchange programs between the United States and Asian countries have long been a top priority for the Institute. These delegations serve to actively immerse participants in issues on US-Asia relations and create links between the legislators in the United States with their counterparts in Asia. USAI has led over 80 trips to China, 11 to Japan and a number of delegations to Korea and the ASEAN nations. Themes for these delegations have included trade, non-proliferation, environmental protection, energy, rule of law, regional and global security, economic development and terrorism.
