The Institute of the Americas is delighted to host a talk with Mark Feierstein, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Assistant Administrator for Latin America and the Caribbean, who has over 25 yearsof experience working on development issues in the region. Assistant Administrator Feierstein’s talk will focus on President Obama’s second-term development priorities for the region and discuss the outcomes of the President’s trip to Mexico and Costa Rica.

Economic and political stability in the Western Hemisphere are vital for the United States. With limited resources and an ever-changing political and economic climate, the United States has had to closely examine its regional development priorities.

Through the USAID, the U.S. government works in dozens of countries throughout Latin America and the Caribbean to promote social and economic prosperity.

This is a must-attend event if you are interested in learning more about U.S.- Latin American relations, the economic and social development of the region, and targeted assistance to facilitate social and political inclusion of the poor, women, and marginalized populations.
