Ambassador Jeffrey Davidow will address the following questions:

  • What would the return of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) to power mean for Mexico and U.S.-Mexico relations?
  • What are the possible scenarios for Venezuela with or without President Hugo Chavez?

Over the course of a 34-year career in the Foreign Service, Ambassador Davidow became one of America's most senior and well-respected diplomats. He has extensive experience in both Latin America and Africa, having served as U.S. Ambassador to Mexico, Venezuela and Zambia. He also headed the U.S. State Department's efforts in Latin America, serving as assistant secretary of state for Western Hemisphere affairs.

Davidow is currently a senior counselor of The Cohen Group, which provides business consultancy and strategic planning to international businesses and is headed by former Secretary of Defense Bill Cohen.

The Global Initiatives Council works to create employment opportunities throughout Southern California by increasing exports, imports and foreign investment for companies of all sizes, and for the communities in which they conduct business.
