DR to host Summit of the Americas in October 2025

2025 Summit of the Americas / Americas Business Dialogue

President Luis Abinader announced the Dominican Republic will host the 10th Summit of the Americas. The event will be held in October 2025 at a day to be announced. The chair of the Summits of the Americas Process is the host country of the next Summit.

President Luis Abinader was in Washington, DC on Wednesday, 8 May 2024 to participate in the 54th Americas Society/Council of the Americas conference. He attended with several government ministers — Minister of Economy Pavel Isa Contreras, Minister of Hacienda Jochi Vicente, Minister of Foreign Relations Roberto Alvarez, among others.

The last Summit of the Americas to take place was the 9th Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles, California from 8 to 10 June 2022.

The Summit of the Americas is organized by a secretariat funded by the US government with the collaboration of the Organization of American States. The participation in the Summit of the Americas so far has been by invitation of the US government.

The Summit of the Americas will happen in 2025 in a new environment where apparently the United States government and business seem to be making a turnabout to focusing on its neighbors to the south. There is underway what is described as a new strategy to reduce the negative impacts and pressure of migration and foster trade and democracy.

The 54th Americas Society/Council of the Americas meeting in Washington, D.C. on 8 May 2024 presented several panels to highlight the new efforts already underway to foster development in Central America the Caribbean and South America, working with Mexico, the US and Canada in North America.
