La Presidencia China del Grupo de los 20 y su Política de Cooperación con América Latina: Perspectivas para el Perú
During the Chinese presidency of the G20 in 2016, UP hosted one of the meetings of Think 20 (T20): a group that draw together think tanks and academia from the G20 member states as well as some invited countries. This is the background to this chapter, which begins by taking up the goals of the 2030 Development Agenda, focusing on the issues of particular relevance for middle-income countries such as most of Latin America: economic growth, infrastructure investment, and partnerships (including South–South cooperation and regional integration). Then it argues that a key characteristic of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) is its multiplicity of economic variables and policies, before examining the Pacific Alliance as an expression of the emerging Latin American subregions. As far as China’s economic relations with LAC are concerned, the country’s importance as an investor is apparent in the trends. Finally, the chapter analyzes the evolution of China’s cooperation policy with the region and presents an inventory of 49 cooperation agreements signed between Peru and China over the period 2013 –2016.
The analysis prompts a recommendation of greater strategic planning to achieve overall consistency and synergy in cooperation across the various fields spanned by the bilateral relationship.
