Link sobre a viagem em julho de 2014 do presidente Xi Jinping

Xi Jinping’s 10-day trip to Latin America in July 2014 constitutes an
important milestone in the development of China-Latin America relations,
marking the first major visit to this increasingly important region for a top
Chinese leader since the extensive trip taken by Hu Jintao in 2004. The
trip occurred during an increase in various economic difficulties between
Beijing and the region after a multi-year period of rapid growth. Xi’s trip
was intended in part to revitalize Beijing’s economic relationship with
some key South American states through new trade and investment deals
and initiatives.

Xi’s event-packed tour of four major Latin American nations marked the intensification
of Beijing’s relationship with a region that has become increasingly important in overall
Chinese foreign policy and development strategy. Since 2000, Chinese presidents have
visited Latin America six times. Excluding Xi’s two trips, these include: Jiang Zemin’s
2001 visit to Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Cuba, Uruguay, and Venezuela and his 2002 visit
to Mexico; and Hu Jintao’s state visit in 2004 to Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Cuba, to
Mexico in 2005, Costa Rica, Cuba, and Peru in 2008, and Brazil in 2010).
