Miami has an extraordinary group of corporate and banking executives who
have a deep, continuing engagement with Latin America and the
Caribbean, and an intense concern about U.S. relations with the region.
The Inter-American Dialogue developed the Miami Group to
give these individuals (and the institutions they represent)
opportunities to discuss the most
important issues in hemispheric affairs; to hear from and exchange
ideas with U.S. and Latin American policymakers, top political and
economic analysts, corporate and financial leaders, and other key
individuals; and undertake other programs and initiatives that they
Why discuss Latin America policy issues in Miami?
- Miami is a central connecting point between the United States and Latin America–commercially, culturally, and demographically.
- Hundreds of U.S. corporations have their Latin American
headquarters in Miami, giving the city an enormous influence in
discussions and debates about U.S. policy in the region.
- Miami has exceptionally strong university programs concerned with Latin America and the Caribbean.
By engaging Miami's leaders in regular exchanges with U.S. and Latin
American policy makers on the most important issues in hemispheric
relations, the Miami Group will both take advantage of Miami's enormous
professional and intellectual resources on Latin America, and help to
further strengthen and enhance those resources.
- There are few other places in the United States where the debate and discussion about hemispheric affairs is more intense.
