President Obama will travel to Indonesia, Brunei, Malaysia and the Philippines from Oct. 6 through Oct. 12, the White House said Friday.
The White House billed Obama’s trip as “part of his ongoing commitment to increase U.S. political, economic and security engagement with the Asia Pacific.”
The trip resumes the administration’s “pivot” to Asia, which has been on the back-burner in recent months amid crises in the Middle East.
