The Incoming US Administration and the Future of Supply Chains in the Americas
Following an historic presidential election that took place amid a global pandemic, the incoming Biden-Harris administration will be charged with navigating the largest economy in the hemisphere out of a multi-pronged crisis.

With supply chains across the Americas highly impacted by the destabilizing effects of 2020, how can the United States and its partners and allies in the Americas work together to advance trade integration in the Western Hemisphere? How can the region modernize supply chains and bolster resilience against future disruptions or shocks? And what lessons learned from 2020 can the public and private sectors take into 2021 and beyond?

Join the Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center and Baker McKenzie on Wednesday, December 9, 2020, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. EST, for a public, virtual discussion that will explore a new vision for the future of supply chains in the Americas.


The public event will also mark the launch of our latest Spotlight publication: The Biden-Harris Administration and the Future of Supply Chains in the Americas.
