President Joe Biden will attend next month’s Group of 20 Leaders’ summit in New Delhi, India, as Vice President Kamala Harris travels to Jakarta, Indonesia to attend the U.S.-ASEAN and East Asia summits, the White House announced Tuesday.

Biden will travel to New Delhi on Sept. 7. The G20 leaders’ summit, which is scheduled for Sept. 9 to 10, will include discussions on a range of global issues from climate change to Russia’s war in Ukraine.

“He’ll discuss a range of joint efforts to tackle global issues from clean energy transition and combating climate change to mitigating the economic and social impacts of Russia’s war in Ukraine to increasing the capacity of multilateral development banks, including the World Bank, to better fight poverty and take on the significant transnational challenges that are afflicting countries across the world,” White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan said Tuesday.

The president will also reaffirm the United States’ commitment to the economic cooperation of the G20 by committing to host the summit in 2026.

Earlier in the month, Harris will take part in the U.S.-ASEAN summit and the East Asia Summit from Sept. 4 to 7. This is the vice president’s third trip to Southeast Asia in the past two years. She visited Singapore and Vietnam in August 2021, as well as Thailand and the Philippines last November.
