EVENT POSTPONED - Regional Integration in South America with Ernesto Samper

  • SCI Belgrave Square, 14/15 Belgrave Square, London

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO THE CRITICAL SITUATION AT THE COLOMBIA-VENEZUELA BORDER FOR WHICH UNASUR IS PLAYING A MEDIATING ROLE. Ernest Samper has had to postpone his trip to Europe and will no longer be speaking at Canning House on Monday 14th September.

Canning House is delighted to welcome former president of Colombia and current Secretary General of the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR), Ernesto Samper Pizano, to deliver a speech on South American regional integration and multilateralism.

In July 2014 Samper was named Secretary General of UNASUR. During the inaugural ceremony in Caracas, Venezuela, Samper announced that he planned to focus on three agendas: political, social, and economical. He also announced plans to create a South American International Criminal Court to deal with regional criminal issues.

Ernesto Samper Pizano was the 29th President of Colombia, in office between 1994 and 1998.

Regional reports courtesy of Oxford Business Group will be available at the event.
