Summary On November 8, 2022, GGR Assistant Sascha Hannig Nuñez’s article was published in Diario Financiero, a Chilean newspaper partnered with the Financial Times. In this article, Ms. Hannig Nuñez highlights the issues related to the recent re-election of Xi Jinping, China’s leader, and warns of the consequences that the Chilean economy could experience. The former, as its allied country, China, becomes more authoritarian and unpredictable. Since Chile is economically dependent on China in terms of trade and financing, she argues that there is a need for the Chilean government to keep close tabs on China’s operations under the premise that what happens in Beijing could have profound repercussions in Chile.
