Cynthia Sanborn attends launch of the Millennium Nucleus on the Impacts of China in Latin America and the Caribbean (ICLAC) in Santiago de Chile
On Thursday August 3 Cynthia Sanborn, senior professor in the Academic Department of Social Sciences and research affiliate at our center, was invited as a senior advisor to present a keynote speech entitled “China in Latin America, debates and future agenda” at the launch of the Millennium Nucleus on the Impacts of China in Latin America and the Caribbean (ICLAC), held at the Universidad Pontificia Católica de Chile.
This invitation underscores the recognition of the ongoing research efforts of the Center for China and Asia-Pacific Studies, as well as its achievements over the ten years since its foundation. During her presentation, Dr. Sanborn stressed three areas of reflection within the center’s research agenda: 1) economic relations between China and countries in the region; 2) the new challenges in terms of socio-environmental governance; and, 3) current geopolitics.
The launch of the Millennium Nucleus ICLAC was attended by several Chilean dignitaries, such as the minister of foreign affairs, Alberto van Klaveren; the Chinese ambassador, Niu Quinbao; the rector of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Ignacio Sánchez; the rector of the Universidad de Chile, Rosa Devés; and the rector of the Universidad Católica del Norte, Rodrigo Alda.
