Rebecca Bill Chavez escribe sobre los ataques profundos contra el multilateralismo, resultado de la crisis de la gobernanza internacional, y las relaciones entre China, Estados Unidos y América Latina.
Rebecca Bill Chavez testifies before the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere, Transnational Crime, Civilian Security, Democracy, Human Rights, and Global Women’s Issues on the Ninth Summit of the Americas on May 26, 2022.
China has become an essential, reliable partner for Latin American nations, while the United States, under the Trump Adminstration, has alienated itself away from longtime regional partners.
Chavez: “[The summit] should not be seen as a one-and-done event. It should be just seen as a starting point for action.”
The United States must embrace a policy of persistent high-level engagement. “I understand that Latin America cannot be our top priority, but it needs to be on the list.”
