The John Brademas Center and NYU Washington, DC invite you to join a conversation with El Salvador's Vice President Félix Ulloa on March 16, 2020.
Vice President Félix Ulloa will discuss the historic transformations taking place in El Salvador in the areas of economic development, security, and political engagement following the 2019 elections. El Salvador's reputation is quickly improving from that of a violent Central American nation plagued by corruption and massive outflows of migrants to one of an emerging investment and tourism destination, with a people-focused government bringing new hope to its citizens and unparalleled engagement through social media.
Join us in traveling to an important part of the world with Vice President Ulloa and moderator Geovanny Vicente Romero, Founder, Dominican Republic Center of Public Policy, Leadership and Development (CPDL-RD) and Columnist for CNN.
