“China’s Transport Infrastructure Investment in LAC: Five Things to Know” – November 13, 2018

The Dialogue

As part of a broader effort to assess Chinese infrastructure development in the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) region, the Inter-American Dialogue’s Asia and Latin America program has compiled a database of the many road, rail, port, and other transport infrastructure projects that have attracted Chinese support and investment since 2002. These deals are in various stages of development, from mere concepts to fully operational networks. Some others have faced protracted delays or been cancelled altogether…The scale of Chinese activity in this sector is nonetheless noteworthy, with projects underway across the region, including in Central America and the Caribbean. To date, Chinese companies and banks have indicated interest in approximately 150 transport infrastructure projects in LAC and have delivered a considerable portion thereof. As the Belt and Road lands in Latin America, governments will be looking to China for more transport-related support.
