O Governo Trump e a América Latina: O Impacto nas Relações Brasil-México

  • 03 july 2017

Mexican Ambassador Andrés Rozental gave the first lecture of the CEBRI Breaking News series at the institution's new headquarters, in the district of Gávea, in Rio de Janeiro's Zona Sul. With a diplomatic career totaling 35 years, serving as Mexican Ambassador to the United Kingdom between 1995 and 1998 and Mexican Ambassador to Sweden between 1983 and 1988, Rozental was the keynote speaker at the event "The Trump Government and Latin America: The Impact on Brazil-Mexico Relations", which was mediated by Ambassador José Botafogo Gonçalves, Vice-President Emeritus of CEBRI.

Rozental outlined the scenario of deteriorating relations between Mexico and the United States since President Donald Trump's inauguration. He presented the key domestic and foreign mistakes of the current American administration and the myths created by the administration in relation to Mexico. Rozental also suggested that Mexico is willing to listen to the US and Canada's demands in relation to the expected renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), except if these demands require a substantial change to the agreement's fundamental free trade concept.

CEBRI Breaking News #4 delves into the content discussed at Rozental's lecture, which ended with a strong indication that it is time for Mexico and Brazil to deepen their relationship, especially in the economic and business areas. "It's a good opportunity for both countries to change this traditional way of looking at each other and find ways to cooperate and do things together."
