The Honorable Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA)

United States Senator


China’s growing role in Latin America and the Caribbean has been magnified and accelerated by the COVID-19 crisis, but even before the pandemic, China was moving beyond economic ties to advancing a comprehensive agenda for engagement. Now, urgent questions are being asked about China’s role in regional recovery, and the shape of post-pandemic hemispheric relations. Is China the savior some are hoping for, even promoting? What are the regional implications for economic recovery, democracy, and the rule of law of an increasing Chinese profile? And what can the United States do to support long term prosperity and security in the Americas? Join us as we explore these and other pressing matters addressing the China challenge in the Americas.
