China and Latin America: An Update
Thursday, July 17th, 2008
8:30 AM – 10:30 AM
With the Beijing Olympics just around the corner, international attention has focused on China's support of the Sudanese government and on China's human rights record. Yet little has been said about China's growing influence in Latin America, both through economic ties and through growing ideological ties with anti-American regimes such as Venezuela and Bolivia. Recently, China has expanded diplomatic ties with Costa Rica and claims potential new allegiances with other Latin American nations. Does this economic and diplomatic expansion pose a threat to the liberal democratic regimes opposed to radical populist regimes such as Venezuela? What are the economic, political and international implications of these increasing ties? To answer these questions we were pleased to host Evan Ellis, of Booz Allen Hamilton who presented remarks, followed by a commentary from Hudson Institute Senior Fellows Charles Horner and Rod Hunter.
