    China’s Role in Latin America: Risks and Rewards

    China’s leaders expect to develop even stronger economic ties with Latin Americain the coming years. But their extensive focus on the region’s extractive and agricultural sectors has generated concern about the long-term benefits of Chinese trade and investment. Involvement in the region’s oil and mining industries has also exposed Chinese firms to political and economic risk in certain cases. How is the China-Latin America relationship evolving and what can we expect in terms of Chinese engagement in the coming years?
