World Affairs – Global Economy – International Policy – Vision and Innovation


China is just catching up with the rest of the developed world and has all the right to expand its relations with Latin America like the rest of the globe, no more Monroe Doctrine or the Mercantilism Time for Latin America.

Latin American countries are opting for diverse international trade, economic and financial relationships and seeking also to learn about different cultures than the ones they inherited from the Europeans.

Since the independence movement and since the mid of the early 19th century, Latin American leaders have been seeking the inclusion of Asians in their economies as a way to reinforce their modernization drive and consolidate their urban population. Brazil and Peru have been in the forefront of such opening and acceptance of Japanese and Chinese citizens to the point that during the second war, Brazil became the target of investigations and surveillance of the Japanese community living mainly in the Sao Paulo State.

In fact, Brazil has been and still is the country who has the largest Japanese community living outside of Japan while Peru had a President of Japanese descent.

Within such historical and cultural ties of Latin America, China actually is renewing and renovating the inheritance of shared common memories that were built by previous generations.
