The relationship with China is of great interest to the dominant sectors of each of the Latin American countries, as evidenced by the economic groups associated with agribusiness in countries such as Brazil, Argentina or Uruguay, the large regional contractors who enrich themselves with works of large-scale infrastructure and even sectors linked to financial and mobile phone number list real estate speculation associated with extractive ventures, as is the case in the large lithium water mining industry. The linear association of these interests as belonging to a country and necessary for "development" is problematic.
Thus, the arrival of foreign direct investment mobile phone number list tends to be presented as an indisputable solution, assuming it as the basis for overcoming the so-called «external restriction» of the economies through the exacerbation of extractive projects, which, according to this perspective, would result in mitigating employment and poverty problems. This type of analysis promotes an epistemic blindness that traffics the interests of the ruling classes as "popular." The key challenge for the China-Celac Forum to become a space that genuinely fights for mobile phone number list a fair energy transition or against poverty, is that it be constituted as a more horizontal space, and even with more direct participation of the Latin American popular sectors. on the International Relations agenda that their governments bring to the forum.
At the moment, not only does this not seem to mobile phone number list happen, but we could ask ourselves if China is being invited by CELAC as a body to discuss horizontally on global issues, or rather the Forum represents a unilateral expression of the People's Republic's vision of China on the region, almost as a "natural extension" of China's white papers to Latin America.
