Economy in Mind, Bolsonaro Softens Tone on China

BRASILIA, Brazil (AP) — What a difference a year makes.

In the months before last year's presidential election in Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro described China as predatory and thumbed his nose at the Chinese government by visiting Taiwan, Beijing's archrival.

Now, as a more pragmatic president, Bolsonaro is welcoming Chinese President Xi Jinping to an international summit that begins Wednesday in Brasilia, the capital.

The first item on the agenda for Bolsonaro, a far-right leader who has sometimes tried to hang the communist label on his political rivals in Brazil, is a bilateral meeting with Xi.

It's a sign of how Bolsonaro views China as critical to his ambitions to rejuvenate Brazil's sluggish economy.
