ONLINE EVENT — Ambassador Dialogues: US-Ecuador Relations


The Inter-American Dialogue is pleased to host a series of high-level conversations with top diplomats from the western hemisphere titled Ambassador Dialogues. Amidst a turbulent political landscape, democratic decline, and challenging economic conditions across the region, bilateral diplomacy remains one of the strongest tools for fostering collaboration and devising innovative solutions to the most critical challenges. The Ambassador Dialogues series will engage key ambassadors from Latin America and Caribbean with their US counterparts to explore opportunities for cooperation to address today’s most relevant issues. Trade, migration, democracy, social inclusion, and more will be examined in the context of each unique bilateral relationship.
