WASHINGTON, USA – The Organization of American States (OAS) and the Meridian International Center will work together to promote collaboration and dialogue between diplomatic, business and policy leaders on the current challenges in the Inter-American and global agenda.

During the ceremony, the secretary-general of the OAS, Luis Almagro, said: “As two organizations focused on fostering international cooperation, the joint work of the OAS and Meridian will contribute to enriching political discussion, policy analysis and decision-making in the areas of democracy, human rights, multidimensional security and integral development. We look forward to working together to advance our common goals in the Americas, and to strengthening communication and understanding between OAS member states and key stakeholders on global leadership, diplomatic engagement, culture, and corporate diplomacy.”

CEO of the Meridian International Center, Stuart Holliday, said: “The challenges we face today are complex and multifaceted, requiring a collaborative approach. By working together, we can leverage our respective strengths and expertise to create impactful and sustainable solutions.
