Trade between China and Latin America has grown from $12 billion in 2000 to $289 billion in 2013. In 2015, Chinese President Xi Jinping pledged to invest $250 billion in Latin America over the next decade. World Policy Journal examines this evolving relationship through the lens of Chinese foreign direct investment and loans in six countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela. A focus is placed on the imbalanced trade relationship and key investment industries such as mining and oil.
