Australian National Centre for Latin American Studies presents:
“Latin America and China: Beyond Trade and Investments?”
Professor Enrique Dussel
6:30pm Thursday 3 November
Manning Clark Centre, Theatre 5, ANU
The China-Latin American trade and investment relationship has deepened significantly.
But does this relationship extend beyond economic considerations? This presentation will look at the bilateral relationship from a socioeconomic perspective, discussing the possibilities for expanded cooperation in areas such as research and development, technology, education, and expanded cooperation in projects of mutual interest. To address these issues, the case of Mexico and China will be taken up as the focus, with the subsequent discussion looking for lessons from the existing Australia-China relationship.
