China's Rising Interest in Latin America

In the last decade, China has successfully built strong commercial and investment relationships with Latin American and Caribbean countries. Before the global economic crisis hit last fall, China's nearly insatiable demand for commodities to fuel its rapidly growing economy provided a powerful stimulus throughout the region. Now, despite the global economic downturn, China continues to pour billions of dollars into Latin America through investments, loans, acquisitions, and currency swaps. By striving to reduce the recession's impact, China hopes to be perceived as a friendly economic partner rather than a competitor and to lay the foundation for stable, long-term commercial relations. The result is likely to be a new balance between China and Latin America that will have significant consequences for the United States, Europe, Asia, and the entire global economy.
