the 4TH Latin America
China Investors forum
september 11TH-12TH, 2012
The Latin America-China investment relationship is evolving. In the last 10 years alone, bi-lateral investment
between Latin America and China grew by 1,400%, totaling over USD 140 billion. Paced by record investments
in natural resources, like Chinalco’s USD 2.2 billion deal for Peru’s Toromocho Coppermine and Sinopec’s USD
7 billion acquisition of YPF-Repsol’s Brazilian assets, the relationship has matured to include investments in
sectors ranging from automotives to manufacturing. Beyond this, a more complex exchange encompassing RMB fixed-income structures,and significant equity
& debt capital flows to sectors driven by Latin America’s changing demographics, has positioned the Latin
America-China investment relationship as a driver of the global economy for years to come.
Now in its fourth year, The Latin America China Investors Forum (LA-CIF) has cemented its role as the
preeminent platform for Latin American companies, governments, issuers and fund managers to meet with
their Chinese peers and start the process towards deals, investments and sustainable business relationships.

meetings at the Forum.
