U.S. Vice President Pence and Salvadoran Vice President Ortiz. (White House)

Council of the Americas invites you to discussion on July 18 with senior level representatives of both U.S. government and the private sector to analyze regional issues.

The Northern Triangle region of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, has been plagued by violence and a lack of opportunity, driving migration flows toward the United States. All parties agree that long-term regional stability must be built upon sustainable economic growth. Governments, international financial institutions, and the private sector are all critical partners in improving the Central American business climate by streamlining trade, creating jobs, and developing infrastructure.

In mid-June, the U.S. and Mexican governments cohosted the "Conference on Prosperity and Security in Central America", including U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and various U.S. cabinet officials, to advance these issues.

Council of the Americas invites you to a discussion with senior level representatives of both the U.S. government and the private sector to analyze Central American issues including business conditions in the region, and potential priority areas that need attention.
