US: A giddy President Joe Biden on Saturday hailed the congressional passage of a long-delayed $1 trillion infrastructure bill as a “once in a generation” investment and predicted a broader social safety net plan will be approved despite tense negotiations.
Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris appeared in the White House State Dining Room about 12 hours after moderate and progressive Democrats in the House of Representatives overcame internal bickering and delivered the president his biggest legislative win thus far.
“Finally, infrastructure week,” Biden said with a chuckle. “I’m so happy to say that – infrastructure week!”
The president’s comment referred to a running joke in recent years after Biden’s Republican predecessor Donald Trump declared “Infrastructure week” in 2018 but was unable to pass a bill after multiple tries during his presidency.
Eurozone: British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss will travel to Malaysia on Sunday as part of a week-long visit to southeast Asia aimed at deepening economic and security ties in the region, her office said.
Truss will also visit Thailand and Indonesia, chosen to reflect their “growing economic and diplomatic heft”, as post-Brexit Britain looks to strengthen relations with nations and regions beyond Europe.
“I want to position Britain where the future growth is and to think about who our major partners will be in 2050 and beyond,” Truss said in a statement.
“Southeast Asia will be the engine of the global economy and I want Britain to be part of that, upgrading our economic and security relations with the region to reflect its growing importance.”
The Foreign Office said Truss would look to build closer ties on infrastructure investment into the region.
