(p.89) 5 Cuban-Chinese Relations after the End of the Cold War
Cuba in a Global Context

Carlos Alzugaray Treto

University Press of Florida

Sino-Cuban relations have vastly improved since the end of the Cold War and they will continue to develop and increase in both the economic and political fields. For Cuba, China is a strategic ally, especially because of its world role, but also because of its increasing economic strengths. For China, Cuba is a vital link with Latin America and the Caribbean. Cuba has established a number of alliances in the region, with Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina, and other countries, which can only benefit Beijing. The geopolitical and ideological implications of Cuban-Chinese relations can never be sufficiently underlined. Recent developments have demonstrated that Cuba exercises a very active and influential foreign policy, especially in Latin America and the Caribbean, a region where its interests coincide with those of Beijing.
