This report discusses how the changing global geopolitical relations that result from China’s new position in the world affect the LAC region and its international relations. In addition, the report discusses how the EU and its member countries, including the Netherlands, could react to the challenges of the increased Chinese presence and can help to counter any potential negative consequences of the Chinese presence.
