Description

As one of the remaining democracies in Latin America, Guatemala is in a critical position to advance mutual values and interests in the region. From its recognition of Taiwan to its cooperation on trade, migration, and security, Guatemala is a critical U.S. partner in Latin America and the crucial Northern Triangle region. However, the Biden Administration is imposing a partisan and highly politicized agenda on Guatemala, demonstrated with its failed “root causes” strategy and its most recent decision to exclude Guatemala from the Summit for Democracy.

President Alejandro Giammattei is entering his third year in office. The Heritage Foundation has invited President Giammattei as he highlights the importance of U.S.-Guatemala relations and our engagement with democratic partners in the region. From the border crisis to the rising threat of China and the prolonged need for strengthening trade relations, the need to highlight this importance could not be more timely.
