The changing nature of Asian investment in Latin American manufacturing: a value chain analysis

This chapter assesses the changing nature of Asian foreign direct investment (FDI) in Latin American manufacturing, with a focus on the position of Latin America within Asian global value chains. Value chain analysis helps to evaluate the local benefits of participating in the global economy. The study also identifies the policies that have enabled individual producers and countries to increase their shares in these gains. At the same time, the report seeks to depart from the dichotomy of whether globalization benefits or harms the poor within the context of bilateral relations between Asian and Latin American countries.
