The platform is expected to strengthen mutual understanding, inspire thoughts, spread ideas, and Build up a reputation.


Vision

The overall vision of the Consortium is to promote closer ties and understanding between Latin America and China, by means of joint research projects and educational activities. Furthermore, the Consortium seeks to promote Latin American culture in China, and the Chinese culture in Latin America.
