US President Biden begins Democracy Summit Wednesday
United States President Joe Biden will Tuesday open the three-day Democracy Summit.
The summit “will bring together leaders from government, civil society, and the private sector to set forth an affirmative agenda for democratic renewal and to tackle the greatest threats faced by democracies today through collective action.”
A statement published on the United States Department of State website said the Biden-Harris administration had since its inauguration “made clear that renewing democracy in the United States and around the world is essential to meeting the unprecedented challenges of our time”.
“As President Biden stated on the International Day of Democracy, “No democracy is perfect, and no democracy is ever final. Every gain made, every barrier broken, is the result of determined, unceasing work,” said the statement.
