Description:
In this monograph, the author argues that China?s pursuit of longterm strategic objectives is leading the country to increase its presence in Latin America, with serious national security implications for the United States. China has begun to aggressively court Latin America as its principal source of supply outside Asia. The pattern of Chinese investment in countries such as Argentina, Brazil, and Chile suggests that the Asian giant is seeking to assure access to critical commodities by constructing vertically integrated supply networks over which it has leverage. China is purchasing interest in key Latin American suppliers such as the Canadian minerals firm Noranda, or the Argentine oil subsidiary PlusPetrol Norte. It is also building cooperative relationships with supplier governments such as the joint oil exploration and refinery construction deals signed with Venezuela and Brazil in 2004. Where necessary, China is also investing in the infrastructure of Latin American countries to help them more effectively bring their products to market.
Drivers of Chinese trade and investment in Latin America -- The shape of China's new engagement in Latin America : Venezuela, Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Peru/Ecuador, Bolivia, Panama, Cuba, Mexico -- Increasing Chinese noneconomic engagement with Latin America -- Implications for the region and U.S. national security -- Conclusion.
