The Americas Partnership for Economic Prosperity is a framework for regional cooperation to foster regional competitiveness, resilience, shared prosperity, and inclusive and sustainable investment. The United States, together with partner countries including Barbados, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama, Peru, and Uruguay, are committed to sustainable development for our shared region.
In June 2022, the United States announced the Americas Partnership for Economic Prosperity, or “Americas Partnership,” at the Summit of Americas in Los Angeles, California. The Americas Partnership charts a path forward to tackle economic inequality, foster regional economic integration and good jobs, and restore faith in democracy by delivering for working people across the region.
On January 27, 2023, the U.S. Secretary of State and the United States Trade Representative co-hosted a ministerial level event to advance the Americas Partnership with representatives from the initial Western Hemisphere countries who will join them to endorse the principles and goals of the initiative.
