China Latin America Ties

Since 2000, the OECD said Chinese trade with Latin America has multiplied more than 20 times.

And it’s about to multiply even more. While the U.S. remains Latin America’s biggest trading partner, Trump’s protectionist views are giving China a chance to become and even bigger player in the region.

To discuss the foreign investments in Latin America:

  • Cecilia Nahon , a former Argentinian Ambassador to the U.S. 
  • Charles Tang , the chairman of the Brazil-China Chamber of Commerce
  • Cynthia Arnson, the director of the Latin America program at the Wilson Center
  • Victor Gao, an international relations expert
