Road to the 2022 Summit of the Americas: Trade and Investment

January 10, 2022 • 4:00 – 5:00 pm EST

Please join the CSIS Americas Program for a virtual discussion on trade and investment in the leadup to the 2022 Summit of the Americas. 

Even before Covid-19, the countries of the Western Hemisphere were experiencing tepid economic growth, growing at some of the slowest rates in the developing world. The pandemic has catalyzed a drive toward more resilient supply chains by moving them closer to home. The 2022 Summit of the Americas provides a unique opportunity for leaders, and specifically the Biden administration, to pursue an ambitious agenda on trade and investment, strengthen regional trade agreements, and encourage major businesses and industries to relocate and reinvest in the Americas. 

This event will assess the strength of regional trade and investment agreements, explore prospects for supply chain relocation within the Western Hemisphere, and outline trade and investment priorities for leaders ahead of the 2022 Summit of the Americas. 

This event was made possible through general support to CSIS.
