Abstract

China’s relations with Latin America and the Caribbean (hereinafter referred to as Latin America) have a long history. However, Latin America was the last region to establish diplomatic relations with New China. For a long time, due to the close geopolitical relationship with the United States and the high level of the economic development, Latin America was not prominent in China’s foreign aid policy. Nevertheless, the history of the development of the China-Latin America relationship shows that China’s aid has been an indispensable diplomatic leverage in promoting the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Latin American countries, consolidating China’s diplomatic relations with this region and supporting China’s positions on the special issues-related to Latin America.
