China was instrumental in helping Latin America weather the last global financial crisis. Can it do so again? The coming recession could offer the superpower a new opportunity to build influence in Latin America. But this isn’t 2008, says China-Latin America expert Margaret Myers, and the regional relationship is a lot more complicated. Myers joined AQ’s Editor-in-chief Brian Winter to discuss what China wants in Latin America, and what the pandemic changes.
Margaret Myers is the director of the China and Latin America program at the Inter-American Dialogue.
