DESCRIPTION

In recent years, China's explosive outflow of foreign direct investment (FDI) globally can be measured in the hundreds of billions of dollars, with close to 10 billion of that going each year to Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). The characteristics and significance of that investment in LAC are the focus of this new book.

The authors first discuss FDI in the region from the Chinese perspective and then look at the cases of China and the EU, Africa, and Australia as points of comparison. In the second part of the book, they concentrate on ten LAC countries, reviewing bilateral relations in each case and exploring in detail China's strategies and impact.
