The Heat: Summit of the Americas

The Heat

About 20 leaders from North, Central and South America have begun arriving in Lima, Peru for the eighth Summit of the Americas.

The meeting comes at a time of regional political instability and change. And against a backdrop that includes the ongoing attempt to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement, tension between the United States and China over potential tariffs, and the possibility the U.S. may decide to join the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
