Expanding the Belt and Road: A New Perspective on China - Latin America Integrated Cooperation

Zhang Yong, Shi Peiran

Volume 1, Issue 2, April 2018


The Sino - Latin American overall cooperation and the strategic essence of the construction of “the Belt and Road” are stemmed from the same origin, and the former is the natural and strategic extension of the latter. In particular, the construction in infrastructure fields (such as the ocean - to - ocean railway system), electric power, logistics and information channels has become a common consensus. Based on this, the Institute of Latin American Studies (ILAS) of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), funded by the Academy’s general project of the “Research on international risk of the Belt and Road and scope of cooperation expansion”, combining innovative project research with the overall cooperation and international capacity cooperation in the series of domestic and foreign research. The research is divided into two categories in domestic and overseas fields. The domestic research is set for the important provinces which closely cooperate with LAC countries on “the Belt and Road”, including six administrative divisions: the city of Beijing, and the provinces of Shandong, Gansu, Sichuan, Shanghai, and Guangdong. Overseas research is set for the two country groups: Russia, and Brazil and Peru. The Russian Latin American research think - tank has been maintaining close ties with China’s Latin American scholars. Both Brazil and Peru are large Latin American countries, through which the ocean - to - ocean railways go, and both face such arduous development tasks as economic growth, social progress and structural adjustment. Therefore they are full of expectation for the economic cooperation with China, and are also relatively representative target countries for China’s “going global”.
