The Canning Agenda 10 Years On

Conference Findings and Forward Look

On 10th November 2020, Canning House held a virtual conference to review the progress of the Canning Agenda and to map out its future.

10 years after the official launch of the Canning Agenda by William Hague, then Foreign Secretary, at Canning House, the Canning Agenda remains the definitive road map for strengthening the UK’s engagement with Latin America. It enshrines the UK’s commitment to a greater presence in the region and to developing this time-honoured relationship into broader and deeper ties for across all aspects of the political, economic and commercial, social and environmental spectrum.

The conference brought together politicians, diplomats, business leaders and thought-leaders for a pragmatic debate on the achievements of the Agenda to date and the shape of the Agenda for the next decade in the radically changed circumstances following the pandemic and the accompanying digital revolution.

On this page, download our Canning Agenda review and horizon-scanning findings revealed through the conference, as well as the wealth of potential opportunities for invigorating the UK-Latin America partnership.

Cristina Cortes, CEO of Canning House, spoke to Express News UK about the Canning Agenda and the implications of Brexit for UK-Latin America relations going forward.
