Latin America Concentration

Our nearest neighbors, the countries of Latin America are historically, culturally, economically, and politically connected to the U.S. Economic and social development in Latin America has led to economic expansion and close trade relationships. Mexico is the US’s second largest export market, and nearly half of US manufactured goods are exported southward. We also see the influence and importance of diverse Hispanic cultures expanding far beyond the Southwestern U.S., with Mexican, Cuban, and other migrations increasing cultural and human ties between the US and Latin America. A number of Latin American countries have experienced increasing democratization and stability, which has led to their greater political prominence both regionally and internationally. Given the close proximity of the region and the presence of Latin American immigrants in our local community, this may be the regional concentration most easily connected to Kentuckiana.
