Global China Series – Inbound/Outbound Opportunities for Chinese – Latin American Cooperation

China represents an enormous economic opportunity for Latin America and the Caribbean. The challenge for the region lies in taking advantage of this historic opportunity to make investments in infrastructure, innovation and human resources, as well as finding ways to covert the economic benefits to Latin America and the Caribbean into investments in productivity and competitiveness.

As Latin America and the Caribbean search for ways to increase their value-added exports to China and to stimulate Sino Latin business alliances, Chinese companies are looking for strategic business partnerships in the Western Hemisphere.

The Institute of the Americas, in cooperation with its Chinese partner, the Institute of Latin American Studies (ILAS) of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, is organizing a one-day policy forum in Beijing to focus on these economic issues as China, Latin America and the Caribbean deepen economic ties. This is the third year that the Institute of the Americas and ILAS have collaborated to offer a Beijing conference on pressing issues facing these diverse trade partners.

Topics of this year’s forum include Latin American Energy: The Impact of Economic and Political Changes in the Region; Innovative Approaches to Creating and Expanding Companies in the Western Hemisphere; and Infrastructure: Building a Solid Future in Latin America and the Caribbean.
