Special Panel: Sino-Latin American Relations in the Era of Trump

This is a special panel to discuss multilateral relations between the United States, China, and Latin America. The election of Donald Trump in November of 2016 introduced uncertainty into the global community. Included in this uncertainty is the condition of relations with critical partners to the United States, such as Latin America and China, as well as how the Trump Administration's recalcitrant stance towards trade may open the door for deeper ties between Latin American states and China.

Speaking on the panel are three experts who will speak on the current state and future status of investment ties, trade, Taiwan’s status, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Panel Members:

Lourdes Casanova, Academic Director of the Emerging Markets Institute (EMI) at the S.C. Johnson College of Business, Cornell University

He Li, Professor of Political Science, Merrimack College

Benjamin Creutzfeldt, Postdoctoral Fellow at Johns Hopkins SAIS Foreign Policy Institute

Location: Rhodes-Rawlings Auditorium, Klarman Hall
