Outreach Program to the
Business, Policy, Scientific and Labor Communities

Featured speakers at our briefings in the last two years have included Adolfo Aguilar Zinser, Mexican Ambassador to the U.N. Security Council; Paulo Paiva, Vice-President of the Inter-American Development Bank; Eduardo Stein, Foreign Minister of Guatemala; Vilmar Faria, Special Adviser to the president of Brazil and Jorge Leiva, the Chilean Minister of the Economy.

CLAS is unique in its outreach to labor groups. Since 2000, the Center has organized visits to Tijuana for the president and national staff of the International Association of Machinists (IAM). In November, 2002, the program was extended to the Executive Committee of the International Metalworkers’ Federation (IMF). The trips focus on the maquiladora industry and its effects on the communities of the border region.
