Please join Americas Society and the Peterson Institute for International Economics for the launch of the Winter 2012 issue of Americas Quarterly, China’s Global Rise: Implications for the Americas.
This event will include a presentation of original Peterson Institute research on Chinese foreign direct investment in mining in Latin America and a panel discussion offering new perspectives on the China–Latin America relationship. What has been the record of Chinese mining companies in complying with labor and environmental standards? What has been the impact of China’s economic rise on Latin American politics and U.S. relations? How does China’s growing presence in Latin America affect U.S. political and economic interests?
