Back in October 2021, the I2 U2 team was founded, tasked with developing partnerships across technology and economics challenges.

Commenting on the challenges of I2 U2, Biden consultant Jake Sullivan said that we can talk about the formation of the beginnings of the Indo-Pacific Union, and the progress already made can be compared with the Quadripartite Security Talk.
