China has become a major economic and political force in Latin America. Chinese leader Xi Jinping has made two trips to the region in 13 months. At a Beijing meeting of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States this past January, he pledged $250 billion in investment to Latin America over the next ten years. A Chinese company is planning to build a canal in Nicaragua and the government has announced plans for a space satellite base in Argentina. China is the primary market for Latin American natural resources and a driver of regional infrastructure projects.


The Institute of the Americas, in collaboration with the Woodrow Wilson Center’s Latin American Program, Kissinger Institute on China and the United States, and China Environment Forum, is pleased to invite you to a seminar exploring China’s evolving political engagement with Latin America. We hope you will join noted Chinese and international experts to examine the latest developments in China-Latin American relations, their place in China’s foreign policy, and the political and economic logic that drive Chinese engagement in the region
