What East Asian Economic Ties to Latin America Mean for U.S. Business

http://dcid.sanford.duke.edu/sites/dcid.sanford.duke.edu/files/documents/E%20%20Asia-Latin%20America%20Taskforce%20Report%20Aug%2019.pdf

East Asia’s three biggest economies have surged into Latin America in recent years: China as a commodity buyer, infrastructure investor and dominant lender; Japan as an auto powerhouse; and Korea as a manufacturer, tripling its investment in five years. But how will China’s volatile slowdown and the economic and political turmoil in Brazil affect this trend? And, will the Trans-Pacific Partnership offer a lifeline by stimulating trade for Latin America?

Please join Asia Society Southern California and the Pacific Basin Research Center, Soka University of America, for a timely discussion including members of Soka’s East Asia-Latin America Task Force, which studied the growing economic ties. East Asia’s role in Latin America raises key questions for businesses in the U.S., the region’s historic economic partner: Can American companies seize opportunities due to East Asia’s investment in Latin America? Can Los Angeles leverage its role as a trade hub for both regions?

SPEAKERS:

  • William Ascher, Donald C. McKenna Professor of Government and Economics, Claremont McKenna College; Director, Pacific Basin Research Center, Soka University of America
  • Stephen Cheung, President, World Trade Center Los Angeles
  • Consul-General Jorge Tagle, Consul General of Chile 
  • Thomas E. McLain, Attorney, Hogan Lovells; co-chair of the Task Force
