This event has been canceled due to scheduling conflicts.

Please join the CSIS Americas Program for a discussion on strengthening the U.S.-Dominican Republic bilateral relationship with the President of the Dominican Republic, H.E. Luis Abinader.

The relationship between the Dominican Republic and the United States is one of growing importance across a wide range of issues. In matters of trade and nearshoring, the Dominican Republic’s talented workforce, advances in manufacturing, membership in CAFTA-DR, and geographic proximity make it a key partner in the global push to bring supply chains closer to home. In the fight against systemic corruption, the Dominican Republic has been the epicenter of a multi-year effort to reduce graft and promote transparent governance. Finally, in efforts to adapt to climate change, the Dominican Republic is on the front lines, and possesses a wealth of minerals that will be increasingly important as the world seeks to navigate the transition to a green economy.

However, these opportunities require a fortified U.S.-Dominican Republic relationship, characterized by close bilateral ties and sustained engagement. There are already promising signs in this regard, spearheaded by President Abinader, whose administration has placed strong ties to the U.S. front and center. This event will focus on relations between the Dominican Republic and United States, shared challenges and opportunities, and the Dominican Republic’s evolving role in the region and the world.

In-person attendance for this event is at capacity. We invite you to watch the live webcast through this page. Credentialed members of the media will receive instructions as part of a separate confirmation issued by the Office of External Relations.

This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
