Among them, the U.S. wants the Indo-Pacific countries to improve their labor and environmental standards

Improving Labor and environmental standards depends on the level of economic development of the country in question in terms of ability. And political development in terms of willingness.

Then there are nations that simply wonlt listen to the US anyway.
