What would a US-China Trade War Mean for Latin America?
Trade tensions between the United States and China are venturing into uncharted territory with the ratcheting up of tariff threats last week. The impact of any new protections would be felt around the world, particularly in Latin America. With President Trump now skipping the Summit of the Americas, which begins Friday, leaders in the region will not have their chance to voice their opinions to him on the increasing trade friction.
Where does the US-China trade conflict go next? What is the range of additional Chinese actions? How would Latin America fare if tariffs are implemented?
