Chinese long term bet on Latin American resources

Report summary

Chinese investments in Latin America are beyond the short-term trade dependency. The region is still far from being China's top energy and metals supplier, but instead, it provides China the opportunity to control strategic assets in oil, gas, metals and mining. While analyzing recent investments by Chinese state-owned enterprises, profitability is identified as the main factor across all their deals in the region, rather than ideological proximity alone.
