For Daniel Runde—director of the Project on Prosperity and Development at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS)—the Chinese regime has met infrastructure and economic demands that US aid to Latin America has overlooked. He warns that China seeks global dominance in economic spheres, with negative implications for Western values.
Runde, author of The American Imperative: Reclaiming Global Leadership through Soft Power (2023), contends that China’s ballooning presence in Latin America portends significant changes in power dynamics worldwide. He also asserts the United States has not been reciprocal with Guatemala, one of the US most steadfast allies that still recognizes Taiwan.
