Wyden Applauds Confirmation of Sarah Bianchi as Deputy U.S. Trade Representative

Washington, D.C. – Senate Finance Committee Chair Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today applauded the bipartisan confirmation of Sarah Bianchi as deputy U.S. Trade Representative for Asia, Africa, Investment, Services, Textiles and Industrial Competitiveness.

Bianchi previously served in multiple senior executive branch roles, including the Office of the Vice President, the Domestic Policy Council, the Office of Management and Budget, and also worked as a Senate committee staffer and in the private sector. She was confirmed 85-11.

“Sarah helped to build a strong Biden agenda that’s laser-focused on making sure that all Americans have an opportunity to get ahead. With respect to trade, that means fighting for American workers and businesses and cracking down on trade cheats that are always trying to rip off jobs and economic growth,” Wyden said. “The variety and the depth of Ms. Bianchi’s experience in public service is going to be a big asset to Ambassador Tai and the team at USTR.”

The Finance Committee has now reported 13 nominees out of committee and seen 10 nominees confirmed by the full Senate.
