President Joe Biden’s administration promises a reset for much of the diplomacy we’ve seen from the US over the last four years. Covid-19 has caused an unprecedented shock to states in the Americas, while slow growth, an oil price shock and political instability trouble many economies across Latin America. With diverging responses to the health crisis, financial market upheaval and varying levels of protectionism, policy-makers face critical questions in the year ahead. This panel convenes experts from the US, Brazil and Argentina to discuss key political and economic trends across the Americas. They will be discussing political relationships under Biden, the forecast for trade and the challenges ahead.
