On September 29th, the Center for the Latin American and Caribbean Studies partnered with the office of the President of NYU, and the Program on Corporate Compliance and Enforcement (NYU Law), for a presentation by the President of Paraguay H.E. Horacio Cartes. The event, hosted at the New York University School of Law, D’Agostino Hall, gave a unique opportunity to members of the NYU community to listen to a Latin American head of state’s vision for his country. Students, faculty, media, and members of the Paraguayan community in New York, filled the 135 seat capacity room to hear about President Cartes’s proposals for making Paraguay “A Land of Opportunity,” as his presentation’s title stated. President Cartes also answered questions from the audience in a session moderated by Jorge Castañeda, Global Distinguished Professor of Latin American and Caribbean Studies at NYU.
