From the launch of the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF), apprehension surrounds its true intentions and objectives. While touted as a US-led strategy to counter China’s dominance in the region, IPEF seems to be a very slow-paced initiative. How it will progress and go about it remains a question that baffles economies. This paper presents IPEF’s cohesiveness with the member economies. It assesses IPEF’s alignment with domestic policies and FTA commitments, as well as in terms of priorities and visions of the country. Considering the integration among IPEF partners, results suggest that IPEF is aligned with the issues and policies of economies.
