Philip C. French retired as a senior career diplomat after 30 years in the U.S. Foreign Service, serving in Latin America, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. A former Director of Andean Affairs and Deputy Chief of Mission in Caracas, Mr. French will address the growing unrest in Venezuela and mistrust of the Maduro government, the country’s economic decline and the U.S.’s continued sticky relationship with the country. How did this former political ally, commercial partner and possessor of the world’s largest oil reserves become an ideological enemy and economic basket case?
