Statement from White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on President Biden’s Travel to New Delhi, India, and Vice President Harris’ Travel to Jakarta, Indonesia

White House

President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. will travel to New Delhi, India, from September 7-10  to attend the G20 Leaders’ Summit. President Biden and G20 partners will discuss a range of joint efforts to tackle global issues, including on the clean energy transition and combatting climate change, mitigating the economic and social impacts of Putin’s war in Ukraine, and increasing the capacity of multilateral development banks, including the World Bank, to better fight poverty, including by addressing global challenges.  While in New Delhi, President Biden will also commend Prime Minister Modi’s leadership of the G20 and reaffirm the U.S. commitment to the G20 as the premier forum of economic cooperation, including by hosting it in 2026.

From September 4-7, Vice President Kamala Harris will travel to Jakarta, Indonesia to attend the U.S.-ASEAN Summit and the East Asia Summit and engage with leaders from the Indo-Pacific. The Vice President and ASEAN leaders will review the unprecedented expansion in U.S.-ASEAN relations under the Biden-Harris Administration and the Vice President will reaffirm the United States’ enduring commitment to Southeast Asia and ASEAN centrality. Throughout these Summits and her additional engagements, the Vice President will advance initiatives to promote our shared prosperity and security, including by advancing our work on the climate crisis, maritime security, infrastructure, economic growth, efforts to uphold and strengthen international rules and norms in the region, and other regional and global challenges.

This visit builds on President Biden’s participation in the U.S.-ASEAN Summit and the East Asia Summit in Phnom Penh, Cambodia in November 2022, his virtual participation in the U.S.-ASEAN Summit and East Asia Summit in November 2021, and the President’s and Vice President’s engagements with ASEAN leaders at the historic May 2022 U.S.-ASEAN Special Summit in Washington, D.C. This is the Vice President’s third trip to Southeast Asia in the past two years, and builds on her August 2021 visit to Singapore and Vietnam and her November 2022 visit to Thailand and the Philippines.

Additional information, including about bilateral engagements and other details on the trip, will be forthcoming — and we look forward to having further details to share soon.
