India and Latin America

Jorge Heine (Chile's Ambassador to China) and Hari Seshasayee (an Indian who has done a lot research on Latin America) have a book chapter on Latin America-India ties. It provides a good summary of this relatively new relationship that tends to get obscured by so much attention on China.

It's been tentative, driven largely by bilateral commercial agreements. There's not much historical connection so the ties are not too deep. There are also few non-economic ties, so the diplomatic connections remain shallow as well. Interestingly, they note the lack of air connectivity. So even if you want to establish some sort of more permanent linkage--student exchanges, let's say, or even just tourism--you can't get there and back very easily.
