After serving in senior economic policy positions in the U.S. government and in executive roles in the financial services sector, I have seen first-hand the critical importance of coordinated efforts among the U.S. government, our foreign allies, and global financial institutions to promote international development in parts of the world that are plagued by the predatory economic conduct of the Chinese Communist Party. I look forward to working with the Commission in outlining both defensive and offensive strategies to combat this behavior and promote vital U.S. national security interests.
