Northern Nevada International Center presents the US-Latin American Relations: Opportunities in trade, migration and investment



The Northern Nevada International Center (NNIC) will host its first event of the 2011-12 World Affairs Council Speaker Series on the topic of the US-Latin American Relations: Opportunities in Trade, Migration, and Investment. Latin America is a rising economic hub considered important by the United States, the European Union, and China. Despite problems with violence and drug trafficking, Latin America exhibits growth rates in various sectors and the talk will provide invaluable insights about the significance of the region’s economic surge.

Luis Navarro is the guest speaker of this talk. He is the past president of the US-Mexico Chamber of Commerce, Pacific NW Chapter and the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in Reno Nevada, and past VP of Blacks in Government (Port of Seattle Chapter). Luis regularly speaks on topics such as economic contribution by minorities, in particular Latinos in the United States and the benefits of global trade. Our speaker will explore some of the opportunities presented by Latin America’s emergence as an economic powerhouse and discuss strategies for American business owners who wish to take advantage of these opportunities.

The purpose of this event is to offer a perspective to the Northern Nevada community about the economic significance of Latin America and the region’s contribution to the world, especially to the United States. The Northern Nevada International Center appreciates the efforts of the media to spread the word and encourage the general public to attend this talk.

The presentation will be on Thursday, August 11, 2011 at the Ramada Reno Hotel Casino on 1000 E. 6th Street between Wells and Sutro. Parking will be available and free. The presentation starts at 9:00 AM which will include breakfast. The general audience pays $15.00 per person (includes full breakfast) and NNIC members are free of charge.
