A New Agenda & Bipartisanship for the Americas & the U.S. (panel)

May 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free – $35

The past two decades have provided great successes and collaborations between the U.S and Latin America, especially in the areas of: economic integration and trade; combatting organized crime and narcotics trafficking; strengthening collaboration on anti-corruption efforts; expanding and improving educational exchanges; and addressing the opportunities and challenges of actors from outside of the hemisphere.

In 2017, Global Americans convened a High-Level Working Group on Inter-American Relations and Bipartisanship to discuss cross-regional ways the current U.S. administration can build and improve upon the achievements of the past twenty years of inter-American cooperation. The effort represents a broad hemispheric voice to define a new agenda for inter-American affairs and recommendations, including:

• Tracking the dissemination of misinformation
• Improving NAFTA to make it more fair
• Expanding the U.S. Treasury Department’s anti-money laundering efforts used against terrorism to address narcotics and organized crime
• Adopting and integrating anti-corruption tools, norms and procedures
• Fully funding and even expanding U.S. educational exchange programs in the face of China’s ambitious efforts in the same field

Please join the Council for a Panel Discussion with:

Foreign Minister Carolina Barco

Former Foreign Minister of Colombia and Former Colombian Ambassador to the U.S. 

Christopher Sabatini

Global Americans Executive Director & Founder and Lecturer at Colombia University’s SIPA
