As the global community continues to grapple with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Atlantic Council is open for business. Our business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please read an update from our President and CEO.

As countries and corporations ponder opportunities around trade relations and supply chain resilience following the global economic reverberations of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Western Hemisphere can position itself to become an attractive destination for manufacturing hubs to hedge against future disruptions. With the right set of incentives, the United States and its Latin American and Caribbean neighbors can work together to capitalize on nearshoring and reshoring opportunities.

What are the benefits of shortening and relocating supply chains away from areas of instability to the Americas? How can the United States and Latin America partner to advocate for economic, tax, and workforce reforms to attract supply chain relocation? Which Latin American countries are best positioned to attract this type of relocation and why?

Join the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center, in partnership with its GeoEconomics Center, on Wednesday, June 2, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (EDT), with Congressmen Adam Kinzinger (R-IL-16) and Jason Crow (D-CO-06) on the potential to bolster national security, foster supply chain resilience, and increase bilateral trade in the Western Hemisphere, as proposed in a bipartisan legislation introduced in the House of Representatives last week.
