Biden: ‘Democracies can deliver…’: Biden on boosting low- and middle-income countries at G7 summit

HIROSHIMA: United States President Joe Biden said Saturday that all democratic nations can provide opportunity and prosperity to build infrastructure in lower-middle-income countries.
Addressing the G7 summit in Hiroshima, Japan, Biden said: “During the G7 meeting, we are addressing a range of issues, climate change, food security, gender inequality, resilience economy, digital connectivity and global security. We are tracking these challenges together and I think we are starting to make significant progress.”
“But if we don’t do more to strengthen infrastructure in low- and middle-income countries to help nations deliver opportunity and prosperity to their people, our impact will be limited. That’s how bad this partnership is key, that’s how important our investments are,” he added.
The US president said all developing countries must find ways to maximize their investments. He further stated that they need to maximize as it will do a lot, not just for this particular business but it impacts the entire region. Maximizing investment will also unlock even more public and private capital.
“Together. Let’s recommit to showing that democracies can deliver. We repeat, democracies can deliver, we must deliver to people everywhere,” Biden said at the G7 summit.
The US president arrived in Hiroshima on Thursday to attend the G7 summit and met with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.
Earlier, ahead of the G7 summit, Biden met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and shared a hug as they met in Hiroshima, Japan.
