During the Democracy Summit on March 29, 2023, President Biden praised the Dominican Republic’s anti-corruption plans and efforts to establish an independent judiciary, stating that the country had modernized its anti-corruption law.

In his meeting with Undersecretary Sherman, President Abinader emphasized the importance of the international community’s assistance to Haiti in its efforts to recover its peace and democratic institutions.

Figueroa also noted that Undersecretary Sherman held meetings with other Dominican officials, including Foreign Affairs Minister Roberto Álvarez, during which they discussed issues of interest to the Dominican Republic, such as the country’s fight against drug trafficking and the positive results achieved in 2020, 2021, and 2022.
