Third Summit of the Americas: Advancing Our Common Agenda

The third Summit of the Americas will take place in Quebec City, Canada on April 20-22, 2001. This event is of high importance to the United States as it will likely be the first gathering at which the new U.S. President will have the opportunity to meet with other hemispheric leaders. It will also provide a unique opportunity to highlight the region's importance in U.S. foreign policy.
