WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Ami Bera, M.D. (CA-07) was elected to again serve as Chairman of the influential House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Asia, the Pacific, Central Asia, and Nonproliferation for the 117th Congress. Chairman Bera released the following statement on his election:

“I am honored to be elected to serve again as Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Asia, the Pacific, Central Asia, and Nonproliferation. Asia continues to be the most consequential region for American foreign policy, as our economy and national security are intrinsically linked to this region.

There are many pressing challenges that Congress must work to address, from an authoritarian China and a provocative North Korea, to the receding of democracy and human rights across the region.

I look forward to working with my colleagues on the Subcommittee and the Biden Administration to tackle these problems, restore American global leadership, and rebuild our alliances in Asia and the Pacific.”
