Twenty years (and hundreds of billions of dollars) after China launched its seminal “Go Global” strategy encouraging investors to search for opportunities overseas, the Asian country’s growing presence in the world is the subject of vigorous debate.
Depending on what you read, China is often presented as either a grave danger to developing countries’ economies, societies and environments, or as a vital source of trade and finance, and a development partner capable of delivering “win-win” outcomes in a multi-polar world.
As the latest chapter in the story of China’s going global, Latin America now finds itself at the forefront of the discussion. Yet few media in Latin America have the resources to understand China and the actors and institutions at the heart of this rapidly evolving story.
The opposite is also true.
With staff in Beijing, Mexico City, Bogotá, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires and London, and a broad global network, Diálogo Chino is uniquely placed.
Diálogo Chino is the only independent journalism platform dedicated to better understanding the China-Latin America relationship and its sustainable development challenges.
We publish in Spanish, Portuguese and English, and reach audiences in China through our partner site chinadialogue.
Our news and analysis crosses linguistic and cultural barriers, engaging diverse audiences and promoting constructive dialogue on China, Latin America and the environment.
