Latin America’s vast resources and strong clean energy credentials provide the region with significant potential to play an increasingly influential role in the global energy sector. Strategic competitors, such as China, have increased their investments in Latin America towards strategic sectors such as critical minerals, technology, and renewable energy. Assistant Secretary Nichols will provide further insights into the latest political developments in the Western Hemisphere and highlight business opportunities that could make U.S. private sector investments more competitive in a dynamic and increasingly more significant region.
