“…This suggests that the inclusion of LAC in the BRI was not part of a Chinese "grand strategy" but rather the outcome of the interests of a range of actors in both China and LAC (Oliveira and Myers, 2021). The role of local agency is also important in understanding why some countries in the region have not signed BRI MOUs with China (Serrano-Moreno et al, 2020).…”

Partnerships are a structured framework for collaboration, yet organised in a loose and non-binding way that aims to enable the pursuit of shared interests and the addressing of common challenges in different issue areas and facilitate (future) co-operation (Strüver, 2017: 36).…”

“…Esta nueva iniciativa de Japón de fomentar la conectividad se basa en tres pilares: conectividad económica (a través de las cadenas globales de valor e infraestructura), conectividad de valores (multilateralismo basado en reglas) y conectividad de sabiduría (para enfrentar los desafíos a través de la innovación) (MoFA, 2018). En este sentido esta estrategia se podría concebir como una forma de contrarrestar el proyecto bri de China, que ha tenido un fuerte impacto en la región a partir de la invitación en 2018 en el foro China-CeLAc de Santiago (Serrano Moreno, Telias, & Urdinez, 2020).…”
