As Colombia enters week four of mandatory quarantine, the government continues to implement measures to protect public health and alleviate the economic and social impacts of social distancing. President Duque has begun to talk about a “strategic quarantine” (cuarentena inteligente) and an “accordion strategy.” These two strategies will allow Colombia to gradually reactivate its economy while also prioritizing public health. Finding a balance between these two crucial objectives has become the government’s main goal.

Join the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center on Tuesday, April 14 from 4:00 to 4:30 p.m. (Washington DC/NYC), or 3:00 to 3:30pm (Bogota) for a conversation with President Duque on Colombia’s COVID-19 response and strategies going forward.

This conversation is the first event under the Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center’s “Leaders of the Americas” initiative. As part of the initiative, the Center will convene Latin American leaders at the highest level to discuss the most pressing issues for the region today.
