SANTO DOMINGO.- Through a letter, the President of the United States, Joe Biden, invited his counterpart Luis Abinader to participate in the IX Summit of the Americas, which will take place from June 6 to 10, 2022 in the city of Los Angeles, California.

“His Excellency Mr. Luis Abinader President of the Dominican Republic Santo Domingo Dear Mr. President: It is my pleasure to invite you to Los Angeles,

California, from June 8 to 10, 2022, for the Ninth Summit of the Americas, where the Leaders of State and democratically elected Government of the hemisphere will advance our shared goal of "Building a Sustainable, Resilient and Equitable Future" for our hemisphere."

In the letter dated May 18, 2022, the US head of state established that with this call the region's leaders will address issues such as climate change, health security and equitable growth and recovery.

“I have tasked former Senator Christopher Dodd and former Representative Debbie Mucarsel-Powell to be my special advisers to the Summit of the Americas and to lead my efforts at the Summit. As we head into June, I look forward to hearing from my special advisers and team with additional details about the Summit."

He indicates that this IX Summit of the Americas will be an opportunity to advance on the greatest challenges in the region and work together towards shared goals.

The initiative is currently in limbo as the manufacturer, India's Biological E Ltd., has yet to receive the World Health Organization Emergency Use List (EUL) it needs to distribute doses.

With several vaccine manufacturers producing more than a billion doses of vaccine per month, observers say the problem lies with global distribution capacity rather than production targets. The Quad is expected to discuss how to best address the problem in the future, as part of its vaccine diplomacy in the region.

Other topics of regional interest are also expected to be addressed, such as combating climate change, rising energy prices, and increasing supply chain resilience in various sectors, including semiconductors.

Biden is expected to visit a Samsung Electronics chip manufacturing complex in South Korea. Last year, Samsung announced that it is building a chip plant in the US state of Texas, a victory for the administration as it seeks to increase domestic chip production to compete with China and mitigate supply chain disruptions.
