FEATURED



On October 12, the House and the Senate voted to ratify free trade agreements with Colombia and Panama some six years after they were originally signed. According to Dialogue president Michael Shifter, the long delay in ratifying the agreements reflects poorly on the United States' declared commitment to partnership with other governments in the hemisphere. Dialogue president emeritus Peter Hakim also contends that the FTAs will not have a fundamental impact on US relations with the region. MORE

ABOUT

The Dialogue's Economics and Trade Program seeks to monitor Latin American economies and analyze the impact of policy decisions. The program also focuses on how the external global economy affects Latin America's economic growth and how specific actors such as China, the United States, and Europe contribute to its development.

The Dialogue hosts the Latin American Economies Roundtable, bringing together a small group of leading economic analysts from government agencies, international financial institutions,  the private sector, think-tanks and universities. Participants analyze the state of Latin American and Caribbean economies, how they are affected by the external environment and what are the best policy options.
