【4/22/2021】CAPA-NoVA Distinguished Chinese American Project

(Written by: Tian Olson)

戴琪(Katherine Chi Tai) (March 18, 1974-) is an American attorney serving as the 19th United States Trade Representative, the top U.S. trade negotiator. She is the first Asian-American and first woman of color to serve in the position.  Tai was born in Connecticut.  Both of her parents were born in China. Tai attended Yale University and Harvard Law School. Tai previously served as the chief trade counsel for the U.S. House Committee on Ways and Means. Nominated in December 2020, she was confirmed by the U.S. Senate unanimously, making her the only member of the Cabinet of Joe Biden to be confirmed with no opposition. Tai is the first congressional staffer in memory to make the leap to a cabinet position. “Freakishly smart.” “Tough.” “Fantastic.” Such comments pop up prodigiously from both sides of the aisle. Biden remarked upon Tai’s appointment, “she’s earned praise from lawmakers of both parties and from both labor and business as well. Now that’s a feat.”
