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.

Belt and Road Ini­ti­at­ive
China’s Belt and Road Ini­ti­at­ive (BRI) con­tin­ues to evolve and of­fer op­por­tun­it­ies for na­tions, com­munit­ies and busi­nesses. But it is not without con­tro­versy in areas such as en­vir­on­ment­al pro­tec­tion and in­ter­na­tion­al debt.As a lead­er in many Belt and Road sec­tors, CMS has polled and in­ter­viewed over 500 BRI par­ti­cipants around the world, about their cur­rent think­ing on BRI and the pro­spects they see for it. This series of re­ports ana­lyses sen­ti­ment around the world, con­siders what BRI means for each re­gion, shines a spot­light on dif­fer­ent na­tions and high­lights leg­al con­sid­er­a­tions. Our find­ings from China, Asia Pa­cific, Cent­ral and East­ern Europe, Middle East, North Africa re­gion and Lat­in Amer­ica are avail­able now.Re­port on Africa will be pub­lished in the com­ing months.me­di­um­me­di­um­me­di­um­me­di­um­me­di­um­me­di­um

New in­vest­ment mod­els for tele­coms in­fra­struc­ture
Out of the tur­bu­lence of 2020, one sec­tor is emer­ging re­ju­ven­ated – tele­coms. The new mega deals, es­pe­cially when it comes to di­git­al in­fra­struc­ture, at­test to it. This is the ac­cel­er­a­tion of a trend, rather than a new phe­nomen­on. If any­thing, lock­downs im­posed to handle the COV­ID-19 pan­dem­ic have only served to ac­cel­er­ate de­mand.
