President Joe Biden chose an accused member of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) front group to promote US economic interests in Asia according to a new bombshell report released by the Daily Caller.
After donating $100,000 to the Biden Victory Fund and $35,500 to the Democratic National Committee in 2020, Biden appointed Dominic Ng, CEO of East West Bank, to a one-year position representing the United States on the Business Advisory Council of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) in April 2022.
According to translations of archival membership records, Ng’s contributions to Biden’s campaign and current job correspond with his participation in an organization that multiple China experts have identified as a front group for a Chinese government intelligence agency.
Ng worked as an executive director at the China Overseas Exchange Association (COEA) from 2013 to 2017, before taking a five-year post with the same title at the China Overseas Friendship Association (COFA) in 2019.
According to assessments from the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission, both COEA and COFA, which merged in 2019, are considered fronts groups for the United Front Work Department (UFWD), a CCP body responsible for both influence and intelligence activities (USCC).
Members of COFA and COEA are required to carry out influence activity in order to achieve the Party’s aims.
Despite his apparent links to CCP front groups, Ng will play an important role in US-Asian commercial relations going forward thanks to the actions of the Biden administration.
In addition to his new Biden approved role, according to the State Department, Mr. Ng is also a member of several other prestigious bodies, including: the Council on Foreign Relations, Mattel, Inc., the University of Southern California, and the Academy of Motion Pictures.
