MENEZES, Roberto Goulart  and  BRAGATTI, Milton Carlos. Dragon in the “backyard”: China’s investment and trade in Latin America in the context of crisis. Brazil. J. Polit. Econ. [online]. 2020, vol.40, n.3, pp.446-461.  Epub June 10, 2020. ISSN 1809-4538.

The purpose of this article is to analyze China’s trade and investment relations with Latin America, especially with Brazil and MERCOSUR in the context of the international economic crisis.
