On May 19-21, US President Joe Biden will attend the G7 Leaders’ Summit in Hiroshima, Japan. The White House said in a press release that President Biden will attend the third in-person Quad Leaders’ Summit on May 24 in Sydney, Australia, with Prime Minister Kishida Fumio of Japan and Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India, hosted by Prime Minister Anthony Albanese of Australia.
According to the release, the President and G7 leaders will discuss a variety of pressing global issues, including the G7’s unwavering support for Ukraine, addressing the dual food and climate crises, securing inclusive and resilient economic growth, and continuing to lead a clean energy transition at home and for our partners around the world. On May 24, President Biden will attend the third in-person Quad Leaders’ Summit in Sydney, Australia, with Japanese Prime Minister Kishida Fumio and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, hosted by Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.
Quad leaders will discuss how they can strengthen their collaboration on critical and emerging technologies, high-quality infrastructure, global health, climate change, maritime domain awareness, and other issues important to the Indo-Pacific people.
Prime Minister Anthony Albanese announced earlier on Wednesday that Australia will host the Quad Leaders Summit on May 24 in Sydney.
“I’m pleased to announce that Australia will be hosting the Quad Leaders’ Summit for the first time on May 24 in Sydney,’ Anthony Albanese tweeted.
Prime Minister Modi will be travelling to Australia in May to take part in the Quad leadership summit.
The announcement was made during the joint press conference hosted by Prime Minister Modi and his Australian counterpart in March when the latter was on a four-day visit to India.
“India and Australia are both members of the Quad. I thank PM Albanese for inviting me to Australia for the Quad Leaders’ Summit in May. I have invited him to India for the G20 summit in September,” PM Modi had said earlier.
The Quad leaders have met four times previously, and their next meeting will be held in Australia. The group’s significance in the region has grown as a result of its strong interest in sustainable and inclusive economic growth, as well as increasing people-to-people connections between Quad members and non-Quad members.
Prime Minister Modi has stated on numerous occasions that the Quad is a force for global good, aimed at developing the region while protecting the interests of all Indo-Pacific region members.
The Quad is a strategic forum made up of India, Japan, the United States, and Australia. Its primary goal is to devise a new strategy to ensure that the critical sea routes in the Indo-Pacific remain free of influence.
