After stepping down as the U.S. ambassador to Mexico, Carlos Pascual was appointed in May as the State Department's special envoy and coordinator for international energy affairs. He will be tasked with designing and establishing a new Bureau for Energy Resources to unify energy diplomacy within the State Department. Will the creation of the new bureau lead to better energy policy and collaboration in the Americas? What energy issues in the region should the U.S. government be focusing on? What are some potential areas of conflict or disagreement between U.S. energy priorities and the interests of countries in Latin America and the Caribbean?
