The Hengqin China-Latin America Economic and Trade Cooperation Park, a key project enhancing the cooperation between China and Latin American countries, will be completed in the middle of this year, Zhuhai Daily reports, citing the managing committee of the Hengqin New Area.

With a total investment of 2.5 billion yuan (about US$363 million), the park covers 87,000 square meters. The park will build three platforms, namely China-Latin America international commodity trading platform, cross-border e-commerce cooperation platform and financial cooperation service platform.

The park will also set up three centers -China-Latin America promotion center for cultural tourism and leisure, enterprise legal services center and policy research and innovation center.

The park is supposed to be completed by the end of June this year according to previous plans. And it will be put into use in the second half of this year at the earliest.

In August 2016, Hengqin took 20 measures to promote the economic and trade cooperation between China and Latin American countries by setting up relevant funds and building a platform of trade and cooperation between China and Portuguese-speaking countries.
