The fourth meeting of the China Analysis Group promoted a broad debate on the global implications of the Chinese strategy to guarantee the country's food security, highlighting the central role played by Brazilian agribusiness exports. Specific attention was paid to the soy industry, which was responsible for about 43% of total exports and 80% of agribusiness exports to China in 2017. The potential benefits for Brazilian development associated with the diversification of the export basket towards higher value-added products, particularly meats, were highlighted, with potential fiscal gains and the generation of direct and indirect jobs.
