China Invests in Central America

IPS has an interesting article titled China Invests in Central America – But Isn’t Buying about China's financial involvement in Central America.

The article looks at how China is investing in each country. Clearly, each country is being treated uniquely. Another big issue well known to usanos, the trade imbalance, is also discussed.

From satellites to inter-oceanic canals, the most innovative or ambitious investments in Central America are coming from China – even though six of the seven countries in this sub-region do not have diplomatic ties with the Asian giant.

But Central America is failing to convert China’s major expansion in trade and industry here into increased exports to that giant market.
