BRI - View from LatAm
China’s Belt and Road Ini­ti­at­ive (BRI) is where some of the key is­sues of our time in­ter­sect, in­clud­ing glob­al­isa­tion, sus­tain­ab­il­ity, the mod­ern­isa­tion of in­fra­struc­ture, new tech­no­logy and health­care. But it also marks the con­ver­gence of some ser­i­ous con­cerns, such as en­vir­on­ment­al pro­tec­tion, in­ter­na­tion­al debt, the Cov­id-19 pan­dem­ic and, in­creas­ingly, geo­pol­it­ic­al ten­sions between the US and China.Our new re­port shows that sen­ti­ment to­wards BRI in Lat­in Amer­ica re­mains re­l­at­ively pos­it­ive, des­pite such head­winds. From the in­volve­ment of Chinese busi­nesses in Panama Canal ports to Chinese in­vest­ments in lith­i­um min­ing and re­new­able en­ergy, trans-Pa­cific con­nec­tions between Lat­in Amer­ic­an eco­nom­ies and China’s Asi­an power­house con­tin­ue to grow.China’s am­bi­tions to ad­vance Belt and Road co­oper­a­tion high­light the po­ten­tial for BRI to help na­tions in Lat­in Amer­ica bridge the re­gion’s massive in­fra­struc­ture gap and re­cov­er from the ter­rible dam­age of the pan­dem­ic, as well as of­fer­ing many new op­por­tun­it­ies for re­gion­al busi­nesses and in­vestors.
