MIAMI— Jorge A. Mestre will moderate a New York City Bar Association panel on “Compliance Challenges facing U.S. Businesses in the Northern Triangle and Central America,” which will be held virtually on Thursday, October 14, at 6:30 p.m. EST.

The panel is part of an NYCBA program presented by the Cyrus R. Vance Center for International Justice and the NYCBA Inter-American Affairs and Compliance and White Collar Crime Committees. 

The panel will be a discussion with lawyers from several Central American jurisdictions including Ignacio Andrade Aycinena (Sfera Legal) of Guatemala, Camilo Janania (Aguilar Castillo Love) of Honduras, Fidel Márquez (Consortium Legal) of El Salvador, and Andrea Martín Jiménez (Sfera Legal) of Costa Rica. It will focus on anti-money laundering, combating the financing of terrorism, and anti-corruption issues. The panel will also discuss intra-regional differences, including the sharp contrast between Costa Rica and the countries comprising the Northern Triangle. Finally, the panel will address the implications of El Salvador’s recent adoption of bitcoin as legal tender.
