What is the Summit of the Americas?

The Summit of the Americas, taking place on April 13 and 14 in Lima, Peru, is a meeting of Heads of State and Government in the Western Hemisphere. This year, the participating countries are focused on coordinating efforts in tackling corruption. Notably, this is the second time Cuba is attending the conference, and the first time a U.S. president has not attended since the conference’s inception in 1994.
