Kissinger Institute on China and the United States
The number of people moving into Asian cities is historically unprecedented.

Latin American Program
Much has been made of China’s growing presence in the Western Hemisphere. Yet, in the course of the past decade India has become a valued partner of Latin America as well. From 2000 to 2010, Latin America’s diplomatic missions in New Delhi increased from 12 to 18, and India’s in Latin America from 7 to 14. Trade, worth $20 billion in 2010, is growing fast, as is Indian investment in the region. Indian IT companies have been in the lead, but companies in other sectors, from oil to pharmaceuticals, are not far behind. What are the implications of this for Latin America and the Western Hemisphere more generally? What is the significance of the relationship in economic as well as political terms?
