2022 Summit of the Americas [May 24, 2022]   [open pdf - 653KB]

From the Document: "The United States is scheduled to host the Ninth Summit of the Americas [hyperlink] in Los Angeles on June 6-10, 2022. The Summits of the Americas, held roughly every three years, serve as opportunities for the Western Hemisphere's heads of government to engage directly with one another and address issues of collective concern. In May 2021, the Senate passed S.Res. 120, calling on the President to 'lead a strong and coordinated diplomatic effort' during the summit process to strengthen democratic governance, support post-pandemic economic recovery efforts, enhance security cooperation, and address displacement and migration in the Western Hemisphere. Depending on what, if any, commitments or proposals the President makes at the summit, he could call on Congress to approve policy changes and/or appropriate resources."
