On the eve of the CELAC-China Summit in Beijing, teleSUR looks at how China’s engagement with Latin America and the Caribbean is paving the way for a new era in geopolitics.
The Community of Latin American and Caribbean Nations (CELAC) is holding a historic summit with China Jan. 8 and 9 in Beijing. The results of such a meeting could mean a final push away from Latin America’s old imperial, capitalist neighbor in the north, towards an investor power that does not attach strings to its loans, nor judgment of different social structures and politics.
CELAC, which unites 33 countries of Latin America and the Caribbean, launched in Venezuela in 2011, when representatives of each country signed the Declaration of Caracas.
The declaration seeks to consolidate integration within the Americas, and to reduce the overwhelming influence of the U.S. in the region.
