In this chapter, we try to present potential opportunities for economic cooperation between China and the LACs, and Mexico in particular. We first illustrate the conditions for economic cooperation. Such conditions include but not limited to the recent enhancing of mutual trust between the Chinese and Mexican governments, the different positions of the manufacturing sectors on the global value chain, and China’s economic structure reform in recent years. Later, we present the opportunities for cooperation in each sector, such as transportation, telecommunications, petroleum, construction of infrastructure and cooperation in intermediates sectors.
