Vice President Harris will welcome President Bernardo Arévalo of Guatemala to the White House on March 25. The visit underscores the United States’ commitment to supporting good governance and democracy in Guatemala, following President Arévalo’s inauguration in January 2024. The Vice President’s meeting with President Arévalo will strengthen the U.S.-Guatemala bilateral relationship and advance joint ongoing efforts to promote development, bolster democracy, and address the root causes of migration.  The Vice President and President Arévalo will discuss additional efforts to address the drivers of irregular migration from northern Central America while continuing the implementation of the Biden-Harris Administration’s Root Causes Strategy, including in the areas of: civilian security, good governance, human rights and labor protections, gender-based violence, and economic opportunity. During the visit of President Arévalo, the Vice President will convene leaders from government, the private sector, and civil society as part of Central America Forward, the public-private partnership that has mobilized more than $4.2 billion in commitments and continues generating private sector investments in northern Central America to create jobs and economic opportunities.
