The University of Miami has a limited number of free tickets to the next event in The Miami Herald and el Nuevo Herald’s Americas Conference Series with Andrés Oppenheimer, a conversatorio, or town-hall interview, with Venezuelan Congressional leader Julio Borges at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, April 21. The conversation, which will be conducted in Spanish at the Braman Miller Center, 100 Stanford Drive, Coral Gables campus, will be followed by questions from the audience.
As head of Venezuela’s opposition-controlled Congress, Borges is at the center of Venezuela’s political drama and the key figure in on-and-off opposition negotiations with the government. He will be arriving in Miami from Washington, D.C., where he is scheduled to meet with top White House officials, possibly President Trump himself. Oppenheimer will ask him about the results of his high-level meetings, the possible outcomes of Venezuela’s political-economic crisis, the status of the Vatican-UNASUR mediation efforts, and other key issues in Venezuela.
