For this year's Simón Bolívar Lecture Series, Venezuelan Ambassador to Singapore since 2009, HE Alfredo Toro Hardy will be speaking on the topic of 'Latin Americans; Who are we?".
"Where does the term Latin America comes from? Who are the Latin Americans? Is LatinAmerica a part of the Western World? What are the similarities and the differences between Spanish speaking and Portuguese speaking Latin Americans? What are the similarities and the differences between the diverse Spanish speaking Latin American countries? Why do the United States and Latin America take a different path? Can we speak of Latin America and the Caribbean region as a single entity? All these questions aim at providing a general but comprehensive overview about that region of the world."
