Abstract

Regional integration such as NAFTA, MERCOSUR and FTAA have been flourishing in Latin American countries in the 1990s. In addition to these multi-countries FTAs, many bilateral FTAs have also emerged both among Latin American countries and between them and extra-regional countries. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the leading factors that are behind the proliferation of intra-regional and inter-regional FTAs of Latin American countries. We also discuss the prospects for bilateral FTAs between Latin America and Asia, particularly focusing on Japan-Mexico and Japan-Chile FTA. Finally, a new approach to cooperation between East Asia and Latin America, the East Asia Latin America Forum (EALAF), will be examined.
