In the impasse of global economic integration, intra- and inter-regional negotiations are intensifying. East Asia-Latin America relations made remarkable progress in recent period. Firms and governments of China, Japan, and Korea have clearer strategies toward Latin America than before in developing such relations. It can be argued that these are the product of market forces driven by the exploration of the static resource complementarity. If gains are to be expanded and widely shared, exploratory search for cooperation in new areas are very much needed.
