The Pacific Alliance held its second investment forum in China on December 9th in Beijing. The forum introduced the potential investment opportunities in agriculture, natural resources and infrastructure in Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru. Ambassadors of the four countries attended the event.

The Pacific Alliance is a political, economic, and cooperative integration mechanism between Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru. Its main goal is to create more opportunities for trade, investment and cooperation within the Asia Pacific region and the rest of the world. This year, the Pacific Alliance is planning to attract $35 billion from the Chinese investors.

In 2012, the combined GDP of the Pacific Alliance member countries represented 35% of the total for Latin America and the Caribbean, which placed it as the 8th largest economy in the world.
