Three Ministers From Latin America to Hold High-Level Bilateral Investment Meetings at the 6th Latin America China Investors Forum (LACIF)

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 08/11/14 -- China and Latin America are set to enter a new chapter in their economic relationship. A solid base built on China's demand for Latin American natural resources has evolved into a much deeper bond geared towards Latin America's changing demographics and abundance of natural resources. As the pace of trade and investment rapidly increases, governments and companies from China and Latin America are becoming even more linked, forging new deals and making significant investments across different sectors.

To identify opportunity and to explain this changing bilateral relationship, LatinFinance holds The Latin America China Investors Forum (LACIF) every September in Beijing. Now in its 6th year, the Forum has cemented its position as the preeminent business and investment meeting connecting Latin America and China.

  • Mario Bergara, Minister of Economy & Finance, Uruguay
  • Vasant Bharath, Minister of Trade, Industry, Investment and Communications, Trinidad & Tobago
