China and Russia in Latin America in 2017 and Beyond | Wilson Center
When and Where
10:00 am - 11:30 am
Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center One Woodrow Wilson Plaza 1300 Pennsylvania, Ave., NW
Cosponsored by the Wilson Center’s Latin America Program and Kissinger Institute on China and the U.S.
Both Russia and China reemerged in Latin America as significant actors at the end of the 1990s, attempting to engage Latin America on multiple fronts. Yet, two decades later, the outcomes of the reengagement are quite different for the two countries. For Russia, the desire to play in the US “near abroad” seems to remain one of the key reasons behind Moscow’s presence in Latin America. China’s interests in Latin America appear to be genuinely linked to trade, commerce, and investments. What are each country’s goals in the region and are they in competition? How do regional actors view Russia and China’s engagement, respectively, and what are U.S. views on these relationships?
