We evaluate whether the presence of China in world trade is ultimately beneficial or whether it is a threat to Brazil. Using a gravitational model and a panel data method, we find that the Chinese exports to countries other than Brazil are not hurting the Brazilian exports, although the exports of Brazilian manufactured goods have been displaced by commodities as a result of its commerce with China.
