Resumen

Some authors consider that the increase in Latin American exportations to the Chinese market and Chinese investments are very positive for Latin American economies, especially for strengthening south–south relations. However, a series of problems have been observed in recent years because Chinese investments in Latin America tend to prioritize the extraction of natural resources, in several cases without complying with adequate socio-environmental standards, and due to the lack of clearness of some contracts. This study analyzes the quality of public information on Chinese mining projects in Ecuador. Specifically, compliance with Ecuadorian legislation was studied through the Web sites of Chinese mining companies. To study the transparency of public information in Chinese mining extractives, a set of indicators adapted to the Ecuadorian legal framework was applied. The results show a great absence of public information on the Web sites as required by Ecuadorian law. Chinese mining companies in Ecuador operate in a culture of secrecy.
