Gallagher in SCMP on Latin American Regional Trade Deal Void


Kevin Gallagher, Professor of Global Development Policy at the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, was recently interviewed on a possible regional trade deal void in Latin America due to campaign promises made by United States President-Elect Donald Trump.

Gallagher was interviewed for a November 18, 2016 article in the South China Morning Post entitled “China Eyes Regional Trade Deal Void Left by Trump’s Win.

From the text of the article:

Kevin Gallagher, a professor of global development policy at Boston University, said that as Trump was building a wall, Xi was building bridges across Latin America. “Xi and China have become South America’s leading trading partner, source of development ­finance and … have engaged in ‘south-south’ cooperation on a number of fronts,” he said.

“Now the agenda will be on infrastructure and industry and how to do so in an environmentally sustainable and socially ­acceptable manner.”
