Diálogo Chino at Canning House

  • Embassy of Argentina, 65 Brook Street, London

China is now a major player in Latin America’s development. Chinese regional lending last year surpassed that of the World Bank and Inter-American Development Bank combined.

Trade between the regions is set to reach $500bn in the next 10 years while investments will hit $250bn. The growing relationship between China and Latin America represents a significant shift in models of regional and hemispheric integration.

But what are the impacts of these rapidly growing partnerships on Latin American environments, policy and climate change?   China’s overseas operations remain under-reported in the Latin American, Chinese and international media, while the need for information and dialogue between government, business, academics and civil society from both sides is increasingly urgent.

Hosted by Canning House, the UK’s leading forum for informed comment, contacts and debate on Latin American politics, economy and business, the following panellists will discuss the challenges and opportunities presented by the China-Latin America partnership:

  • Rhys Jenkins, Professor of Development Economics at the University of East Anglia
  • Gabriela Moya, Senior Policy Analyst at E3G
  • Isabel Hilton, Cristina Veiga and Liu Jianqiang of chinadialogue

The event will introduce Diálogo Chino – a new multilingual website in English, Spanish and Portuguese which addresses the pressing social and environmental questions facing Latin America in this latest chapter of China’s “go global” policy.
