Xi Jinping Visit to South America Bolsters Development, Independence

Wall Street boasted too soon that with its coup against Brazil’s Dilma Rousseff in August, all South America would fall inexorably back under its yoke. That was made clear in Chinese President Xi Jinping’s Nov. 17-18 state visit to Ecuador, the first in a week-long trip which also included state visits to Peru and Chile after the APEC summit in Lima, Peru, on Nov. 19-20.

That 21-nation Summit has been described as the occasion to bury the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) so pushed by President Obama, which had already been handed a death sentence in the United States with the election of Donald Trump. In its stead, the Free Trade Area of the Asia-Pacific (FTAAP), which China first proposed at the 2014 APEC Summit in Beijing, is quickly gaining ground.

Both Chinese and Russian officials have made it quite clear that the FTAAP is not meant to exclude the United States, or any other country. Obama's TPP, on the other hand, emphatically excluded China. President Xi insisted in Lima on the need for inclusiveness and equality, saying “arrangements that are closed and exclusive are not the correct option.”

Coming back to Xi's visit to Ecuador, this country, one of the smaller in South America, has been battling to develop despite having been stripped of any national currency since 2000, when it was forced to “dollarize” by the IMF and U.S. State Department. Both President Xi Jinping and his Ecuadorian counterpart Rafael Correa held up Sino-Ecuadorian relations as a model for the relationships which China seeks with all of Ibero-America and the Caribbean.

During Xi’s visit, Correa repeatedly thanked China for having provided the financing and technology transfer the country needs to accomplish its dream of moving from being a “producer of raw materials to become a knowledge-based society.” The two presidents held a stirring ceremony for the start-up of two key projects which China made possible. From Quito, connected by interactive video, they oversaw groundbreaking on a new hospital in the city of Chone, to replace the one destroyed in the April 2016 earthquake. China’s CAMAC Engineering pledges to build the 120-bed hospital in 18 months, with state-of-the-art seismic design.

Then, they jointly pushed buttons starting up the last turbines of the giant Coca Codo Sinclair hydroelectric dam, built with Chinese engineering and financing by a workforce of 1,500 Chinese and 6,000 Ecuadorians, which gives Ecuador the power to build new industries, and export to its neighbors, as well. Many more major projects are envisaged in infrastructure, oil and gas, agriculture, ship building, metallurgy, etc.

The emphasis on scientific development is notable. On the eve of the visit, Ecuador’s El Telegrafo published an opinion piece by President Xi, in which he underscored that high technology is a key focus of Sino-Ecuadorian cooperation. Citing China's launching of Ecuador's Caballo Alado satellite in 2013, he noted:

    "The experience of our immense development tells us that science and technology constitute the first productive force... Ecuadorian efforts are directed toward revitalizing the country through science and technology."

In welcoming Xi, Correa expressed Ecuador's gratefulness for China’s help in “transforming” Ecuador, not just in such great projects as the Coca Codo hydroelectric project, but in financing “what I consider the most important public work in our history, not in its amount, but in its transcendence: the Yachay City of Knowledge, which includes a world-class university dedicated to promoting innovation and development of the hard sciences.”
