Forum-Macau within the new setting of South-South Cooperation
It has been one of the latest trends in international relations for developing countries to form new partnerships and privilege relationships between each other when it comes to multilateral institutions and to pushing sommon concerns and agendas. The Macau-Forum can potentially develop into a telling example of such cooperation. The organism was created to foment economic and political relations between China and Portuguese-speaking countries and although it has Portugal, a developed country from the north, as one of its members, it consists for most part in a group of countries from the developing world coming together and discussing issues that they are directly interested in. China has been using it as a multilateral platform for conveying political and economic exchanges that complement the more traditional bilateral channels.
