China-Latin America Finance Database

˙ Asia & Latin America

Since 2005, China has provided upwards of $87 billion in loan commitments to Latin American countries. China’s loan commitments of $37 billion in 2010 were more than those of the World Bank, Inter-American Development Bank, and U.S. Export-Import Bank combined. This interactive database provides up-to-date information on Chinese lending in Latin America by country, lender, sector and year.

This database stems from a collaborative project by Boston University’s Global Economic Governance Initiative and Tufts University’s Global Development and Environment Institute. The resulting Inter-American Dialogue publication, The New Banks in Town: Chinese Finance in Latin America, by Kevin Gallagher, Amos Irwin, and Katherine Koleski is the main source of featured data and conclusions. Loan data is updated on an annual basis.
