Summary
"Geographic proximity has ensured strong linkages between the United States and the Latin American and Caribbean region, with diverse U.S. interests, including economic, political, and security concerns. U.S. policy toward the region under the Obama Administration has focused on four priorities: promoting economic and social opportunity; ensuring citizen security; strengthening effective democratic institutions; and securing a clean energy future. There was substantial continuity in U.S. policy toward the region during the first six years of the Obama Administration, which pursued some of the same basic policy approaches as the Bush Administration. Nevertheless, the Obama Administration made several significant policy changes, including an overall emphasis on partnership and shared responsibility. Moreover, just after the end of the 113th Congress in December 2014, President Obama unveiled a new policy approach toward Cuba that substantially broke with the long-standing U.S. sanctions-based policy and moved toward a policy of engagement ... Haiti's long overdue legislative elections remain a concern of Congress as does the Venezuelan government's treatment of its political opposition. In Argentina, the mysterious death on January 18 of the prosecutor in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish civic organization that killed 85 people has prompted congressional concern. On trade issues, the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, which would need to be approved by Congress, could augment U.S. trade and investment ties with Chile, Mexico, and Peru. President Obama's policy changes on Cuba -- which include the restoration of diplomatic relations, a review of Cuba's designation as a state sponsor of international terrorism, and an increase in trade, travel, and the flow of information -- are likely to be hotly debated"--Preliminary page
