Election of Luis Almagro as New OAS Secretary General Represents 'Declining US Influence in Latin America,' CEPR Co-Director Says

WASHINGTON - Today’s election of Luis Almagro as the new Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS) is “another indication of declining U.S. influence in Latin America,” Center for Economic and Policy Research Co-Director Mark Weisbrot said today. As foreign minister of Uruguay from 2010—2015, Almagro was involved in strengthening regional integration through organizations such as the Union of South American Nations and the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States.
