Xi Jinping Takes Center Stage At APEC While Biden And Putin Are Absent

Their absences will allow undaunted Jinping to promote China's economic vision

Chinese leader, Xi Jinping, arrived in Bangkok for the last of three back-to-back summits held over the past week in Asia.

Neither U.S. President Biden or Russian President Putin will be attending this summit. Thus meaning Jinping is prepared to enter the two-day Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation leaders’ meeting in the Thai Capital without having to address conflicts between Biden or Putin.

Both of their absences will allow undaunted Jinping to promote China’s economic vision as leaders gather to discuss issues including inflation, climate changes, rising food prices, and energy insecurity.

Vice President Harris will be in attendance for the U.S.
