Following a presidential campaign with China as a frequent target, President Trump will meet President Xi on April 6-7 at Mar-a-Lago. Will the two leaders find some common ground? What's at stake for the bilateral relationship but also for broader interests in Latin America? With the US now out of TPP, President Xi, the most powerful Chinese leader in decades, has moved to strengthen commercial relations with TPP countries including those in Latin America. Across the Americas, leaders are wondering to what extent China may capitalize on this political moment to further bolster its regional ties. 

Join us for a public teleconference on these issues and more with Chile’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Heraldo Muñoz, who recently hosted the TPP countries plus China and South Korea for a meeting on the future of trade between China and Latin America.  Atlantic Council nonresident senior fellow Jamie Metlz will provide his analysis on the future of US-China relations and the direction for the Asia-Pacific region.
