Food & Drink Panel 2: How can Government Help Business?
This panel analysed what the UK government and Latin American trade organisations and governments can do to help increase the flow of UK-Latin America trade and vice-versa.
Sarah Sheldon and Jon Farmer, from LatinNews, discuss the recent presidential elections in Panama and El Salvador, and what it means for Central American neighbourly relations.
Gunther Baumgarten, also from LatinNews, then talks about the historic decision by the US administration led by President Donald Trump to end the suspension of Title III of the Helms-Burton Act that allows US citizens to sue companies and subsidiaries in Cuba believed to be using properties expropriated after the Cuban Revolution. The first lawsuits were opened on 2 May when the activation took effect.
Cristina Cortes, Canning House CEO, chaired this discussion.
