The visiting Congressional staff members seek to develop a better understanding of Singapore’s policies and viewpoints, especially pertaining to U.S.-Singapore relations including regional business and trade dynamics.  They are interested in international trade enforcement issues such as trade fraud, revenue loss, under/overvaluations, and IPR.

The Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations is the Committee’s chief investigative subcommittee and has the responsibility of studying and investigating the efficiency and economy of operations relating to all branches of the government. The Subcommittee is also tasked with studying and investigating the compliance or noncompliance with rules, regulations and laws, investigating all aspects of crime and lawlessness within the United States which have an impact upon or affect the national health, welfare and safety, including syndicated crime, investment fraud schemes, commodity and security fraud, computer fraud, and the use of offshore banking and corporate facilities to carry out criminal objectives.  Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) chairs the subcommittee; Senator Thomas Carper (D-DE) is the ranking minority member.
