About This Event

Mexico and the United States have long enjoyed a robust bilateral relationship through economic, political, and cultural exchange. As the Biden administration outlines its strategies for engagement with Mexico, public health cooperation, migration, and trade will be key issues for both countries. How does the Mexican government view the future of Mexico-US ties? Join Mexico’s lead official on North American relations for the Council’s inaugural program in the Hart Program Series on Latin America.

About the Hart Program Series

The Hart family established the Hart Program Series on Latin America in honor of Augustin “Gus” Hart, a former chairman of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. Previously, the program existed as a fellowship for emerging leaders from Latin America and the Caribbean. The program series explores key issues in the Latin American and Caribbean region while highlighting and deepening Chicago’s ties with the region.
