Squire Patton Boggs partner Everett Eissenstat has joined a select group of international policy professionals and business leaders participating in the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center (AALAC) Nearshoring Working Group.
As interest in relocating supply chains to the Americas continues to grow, the Working Group will offer concrete recommendations on how to provide the right mix of local and external conditions and incentives for greater US supply chain and socioeconomic investment in Central America and Mexico; as well as create a unique platform for consensus building and advancing the most critical policy issues that will help to spur nearshoring potential.
The Group’s recommendations will be captured in an annual report, the first of which will be launched in mid-2024 and disseminated in Washington, DC, Guatemala City, Mexico City, and beyond.
“The economic and geopolitical climate is driving the need for companies to rethink their supply chains, presenting incredible opportunities and challenges for US, Mexican and Central American business leaders and governments,” Eissenstat commented. “I am delighted to join this esteemed group of individuals on this important endeavor.”
In 2023-2024, the Group will be led by Luz María de la Mora, former undersecretary of foreign trade in Mexico’s Secretariat of Economy and AALAC non-resident senior fellow, and will include former government officials, private sector leaders, and subject matter experts from Central America, Mexico, and the United States.
