Brazil has become the leading destination for Chinese deals in emerging markets this year, according to a Dealogic survey comissioned by Valor. The Chinese have spent $11.0 billion in the year to November with six deals, over twice the total of transactions made in 2015. Brazil also ranks third in global terms, after the US ($60.6 billion so far this year) and Switzerland ($48.8 billion). Chinese investment in Brazil has focused on energy and public utilities, followed by the chemicals industry.
