In 2010 the British government launched the Canning Agenda, announcing its intention to re-engage with Latin America.
Ten years on, Canning House have undertaken a review of the progress of the Agenda in order to establish how successful it has been since its introduction, and to identify what needs to be done to accelerate the progress of a revitalised relationship between Latin America and the UK.
Our Canning Agenda 10 Years On conference has been postponed due to the outbreak of COVID-19. However, in the interests of continuing our work at the centre of our shared Latin American community, we are pleased to offer access to the relevant materials here on our website!
