The second program is Thursday, Nov. 5, from 7-8:30 p.m., Guatemala and the U.S. – Past and Future, with John Hamilton, U.S. Ambassador (retired).The Dominican Republic-Central America Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR) has spurred in Guatemala an increased investment and diversification of exports, with the largest increases in ethanol and non-traditional agricultural exports. At the same time, the country has experienced high rates of criminal violence, drug trafficking and substantial out-migration, including by unaccompanied minors.

Both events will be held in Room 9208 in the PUB on the Shoreline CC campus. Parking anywhere on campus is free during the evening, with a nominal charge during the day.
