Where is the China-Latin America partnership heading?
6 March 2013, Brussels (Press Club Europe), 13:00 - 14:30

The Sino-Latin American tie has been strengthening in recent years forming a new kind of South to South relationship between both nations. Between 2000 and 2011, Latin American exports to China increased almost 18 times, from accounting for under 2 percent of Latin American trade to 11 percent. FDIs have followed a similar path of growth and bilateral high-level visits have multiplied. This new relationship raises various challenges. Will these new economic ties bolster growth or will it increase specialisation in the primary commodities sector, leading to deindustrialisation and overdependence on China’s demand and investments? Does it add to or diminish the margin of manoeuvre in Latin America’s relations with the US and the EU? Finally, how do these new links influence the functioning and relations between the BRICS, and more specifically between China and Brazil?

Citizen’s Controversy with Jiang Shixue, Professor and Deputy Director of the Institute of European Studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and Renato G. Flôres Jr., Professor, Graduate School of Economics/EPGE, Special Aide to the President and Head of International Intelligence Unit of the Presidency/IIU at the Fundação Getulio Vargas

The debate was moderated by Pierre Defraigne, Executive Director, Madariaga - College of Europe Foundation.
