China in the Americas: Assessing the Impact and Implications of Authoritarian Capital
This virtual event will cover the release of a new report on Beijing's role in Latin America.
Join the Council of the Americas for a virtual event focused on a new report, “Exploring the Impact and Implications of Chinese Capital in Latin America and the Caribbean.”
The document is the product of over two years of consultations with public and private sector leaders, experts, and other observers. Available in both English and Spanish, it seeks to raise awareness of Beijing's growing economic and political influence in Latin America and the Caribbean. It also details key project findings and recommendations on responding to these evolving trends and activities.
This report release event will feature an expert panel discussion to examine the story of China’s growing influence and implications of authoritarian capital in the region. Private sector representatives will offer their views on China’s activities and how it impacts their presence in the region during a time of increasing competition.
This event will be recorded and released for on-demand viewing at a later date.
