Since 2013, the New Silk Road initiative is a Chinese megaproject that seeks to connect 4 continents through land and maritime trade routes. More than 90 billion dollars have been invested in 57 countries in four continents.
Latin America is part of the Chinese expansion strategy. Through investment and loans for the development of infrastructure for trade and energy projects, China has established itself in the region and wants to dispute it with the USA.
In this context, the Pacific and Atlantic maritime routes of the continent become important for the expansion of the Asian country. From Mexico to Uruguay, China already controls docks and has projects for new ports.
