China is increasingly part of Brazil’s future, President Jair Bolsonaro said Wednesday, signalling a more pragmatic approach to the Latin American country’s biggest trade partner. Standing alongside Chinese President Xi Jinping in the Brazilian capital of Brasilia, Bolsonaro said he hoped the two countries could not only increase but also “diversify our trade relations”. “China is becoming more and more part of Brazil’s future,” Bolsonaro said, after the two men signed largely non-binding agreements on transport, services and investment ahead of a summit of BRICS countries. Xi echoed the positive sentiments, expressing hopes for the two countries to “strengthen multilateralism and build an open world economy”.

Their meeting – the second in as many months – was one of several to be held on the sidelines of the annual BRICS get-together that will focus on economic growth and innovation.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and South African President Cyril Ramaphosa are attending the two-day gathering.
