Chinese investments in Brazil from January through October of this year have totaled at least US$ 10.84 billion (R$ 35,3 billion at the current exchange rate) according to Dealogic, a consulting firm. The number of acquisitions made by Chinese firms jumped from 6 last year, to 17 so far this year - and are expected to increase even more, according to analysts and consultants in the sector.

Brazil is expected to experience a second wave of Chinese investments starting next year. Analysts are predicting the arrival of major new investor companies and more diversification.

At least ten major companies are already in advanced stages of negotiations for entering into the country, in areas such as renewable energy, railroads, ports, mining and paper and pulp, according to Daniel Lau, a managing partner of KPMG. Auctions from the government's Investment Partnership Program may bring in new interested companies as early as the first semester.

The investment profile, however, has changed, and buyers have become more demanding in their negotiations, according to Lau. Smaller investments, in sectors such as health, logistics, agribusiness and telecommunications are also expected to accelerate, said Eduardo Centola, from Banco Modal. In his opinion, investments in recent years have paid off securely and the uncertain electoral climate shouldn't affect the process negatively.
