The importance and impact of China on the economies of Latin America -in good and bad times- have been explored in different works, but they have not sufficiently emphasized the relevance of other Asian giants like Japan, South Korea and India. In this paper, thirteen recognized analysts from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, United States, Mexico and Peru explore the deepening relations between Latin America and Asia, and what they mean for the political economy of the region.​
