Washington, DC - Over the weekend, Representative Dave Reichert (R-WA) joined a Congressional Delegation (CODEL) of Members visiting Lima, Peru where they met with the Presidents and heads of state from several countries in the Western Hemisphere to discuss U.S. engagement in the region as well as our trade relationships. These meetings were held in association with the Summit of the Americas, which occurs every three years and provides an opportunity for leaders to discuss shared priorities for the Western Hemisphere.

“It was an honor to attend the Summit of the Americas this past weekend. We had productive meetings with leaders from several countries focused on common goals – improving trade relations, human rights, and how we partner when it comes to law enforcement. We discussed how we all benefit when we work together to promote and protect the people and security of the region. I am optimistic about the relationships that were built during this visit and look forward to continued engagement.”
