COVID-19 AND LATIN AMERICA EVENT SERIES
The Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region’s extensive dependence on China as a market for key exports was something of a liability at the onset of the Covid-19 crisis. But China could also have an important role to play in the region’s eventual recovery. How will China’s economic policy affect LAC nations as they navigate the current crisis? As China aims to get its own economy up and running, what is the likelihood of new Chinese finance or investment in the LAC region? Will Covid-19 reshape China’s economic or political relations with the region in notable ways? And what will all of this mean for US-China competition in LAC?
On April 9, the Dialogue’s Asia & Latin America program will hold an in-depth discussion on these and other topics with Joyce Chang, Dialogue member and managing director and chair of Global Research at JP Morgan, and Oliver Stuenkel, associate professor of international relations at the Getulio Vargas Foundation (FGV) in São Paulo. Margaret Myers, director of the Inter-American Dialogue’s Asia & Latin America program, will moderate the conversation.
We invite participants to submit questions using the event hashtag on Twitter OR to email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please RSVP to receive dial-in information.
