Theme 

The consolidation of the People's Republic of China as a new world power is an indisputable fact (Shambaugh 2013, 4). At the same time, the growing presence of China around the world is evident. In Latin America, China is both an important commercial actor and a fundamental investor (CEPAL, 2015, 37-38). The interests of China in Latin America are considerable, with companies and brands that reach more and more notoriety. This phenomenon has different causes, among them, the search of the recognition and prestigious; the desire to strengthen the yuan as an international currency; the look for the preservation of the free trade as a way to guarantee the Chinese economic growth and the promotion of the economic interest of Chinese companies. This situation has three fundamental actors: the State, the companies, and the quasigovernmental organizations. These actors deploy an exact and integral strategy in the region; in consequence, at the present day, China and Latin America have established stronger economic ties (Yang 2015, 298). Now, the expansion of China in Latin America is in a new phase that involved an ambitious infrastructure investment program. This Special Issue promotes a comprehensive approach to understand the reasons, dynamics, mechanisms, and process of the Chinese investment in Latin America.


Subject Coverage 

The special issue will cover the following topics, but are not limited, to:

• The expansion of the Chinese investment in Latin America in the infrastructure sector 

• The effect of the regulation in this process

• The advantages of the Chinese model of financing investment versus the Traditional Western model of infrastructure financing • The interaction between the Chinese government and local and national governments to promote the construction of infrastructure 

• The institutional framework to impede or facilitate the Chinese expansion in the infrastructure sector 

• The effects of the market structure in the specific context of Latin America as a consequence of the project of Chinese infrastructure 

• The types of strategies and organizational forms, public and private, involved in the growth of the Chinese financing for infrastructure 

• The economic, political and social impact in the Latin America countries as a consequence of the Chinese projects in infrastructure
