Chatham House, October 2013
This is a summary of Dr Adrian Hearn's presentation on China and the Resource Boom delivered on 18 October 2013 at Chatham House.
Dr Hearn examined China’s increasing demand for resources from Latin America and Australia, and compared the structural challenges and opportunities this demand has produced in both regions. He focused on different strategies to manage taxation in the mining sector, and on the issue of Chinese land acquisition. He argued the China, Australia and Latin America all would benefit from comparing approaches to these common challenges.
