VIRTUAL: President's Club Conversation on US-Colombia Economic Relations

Francisco Santos, Ambassador of Colombia to the United States; Flavia Santoro, President, ProColombia. Moderated by Matt Abbott.

In 2018, Ambassador Francisco Santos spoke at the Council to discuss a new chapter in Colombia’s history — the Latin American country had recently forged a historic peace agreement, was experiencing rapid economic growth, and had made significant gains in its security situation. Two years later, Colombia and the rest of the world are managing a pandemic that has brought unprecedented change, especially to global supply chains. How has the COVID-19 pandemic affected trade and investment in Colombia? What plans does the Colombian government have to boost economic dynamism? Please join the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, Ambassador Santos, and Flavia Santoro, president of ProColombia, for a conversation on trade, investment, and an update on commercial relations between the United States and Colombia.
