thinks that in recent years, China invested a lot in Latin America with big strength, further enhance
cooperation with Latin America is also our extension of "One belt and one road" strategy.
At present, China is the second largest trading partner and the third largest source of investment in

At present, both China and Latin American countries face all kinds of problems and challenges.
Zhou Zhiwei said that China is faced with the problem of downward economic growth, at the
same time needs to adjust and optimize industrial structure upgrade, and Latin American countries
are also to adjust industry, the core is the promotion of the competitiveness of the industry, the
purpose is to improve the position of Latin America in global value chain.
In this process, why the two sides can hit it off?
Zhou Zhiwei believes that China has a spare production capacity, production capacity in China
also have high technical content, at the same time, under the "going out" strategy, it formed a
complementary relationship between China and Latin America.
The Chinese academy of social sciences researcher at the institute of Latin American YueYunXia
pointed out that the core problem is the insufficient investment of Latin America.
Under the condition of cooperation in economy, this kind of cooperation is a strong support to
them. "China structural adjustment and Latin America industrial upgrading makes both parties
have the possibility of docking. And there is also necessary for Latin America and us cooperation,
for the past emphasis on commodity exports enables Latin America's economic to face many
challenges, such as a problem of industrialization, Latin America is eager to change that." Zhou
Zhiwei said.
Tsinghua university center for economic research in China and the world, researchers Yuan Gang
Ming thinks that the both sides having their own difficulties is the opportunity to cooperate.
Through production cooperation, both sides of the difficulties can be solved to a certain degree.
Such as Latin America can alleviate the lack of infrastructure and the construction technology,
equipment, and China's project to sea can avoid the domestic investment funds and return bad
problem, and ease China's overcapacity situation, especially iron and steel industry such as

seamless steel pipe and welded steel pipe overcapacity problems.


YueYunXia also said the cooperation capacity can solve the decline of the domestic investment of
China to a certain extent, also help Chinese enterprises to expand enterprise scale, improve the
efficiency of enterprises, and create more space for innovation.
Upgrade of the trade and economic cooperation
China and Latin American countries has a good tradition of economic and trade cooperation for a
long time, however, under the new period, the partnership needs a new change of the past.
Zhou Zhiwei told reporters, "in the past China and Latin America's highly complementary in
resources and energy supply and demand, but now in Latin America by commodity is hard to
maintain sustained growth in this cooperation. Now, one is to increase the diversification of export
products of Latin America, the second is to increase the added value of export products."
YueYunXia pointed out that in the past dozen years trade in primary products accounted for a large
proportion of the background of this kind of phenomenon is in the process of economic
development in China the great demand for primary products is driven by the rise in the price of
the product, led Latin American exports to China.
And now, the international commodity prices decline phenomenon is also the result of the China's
own transformation growth pattern, at the same time is the old model needs to change.
Future bilateral trade in primary products proportion will be reduced gradually, the proportion of
investment will increase, along with our country manufacturing industry to upgrade efficiency,
innovation, excess capacity will gradually transferred out of traditional industries.
