Abstract

We propose a two-year project for the collection, exchange and analysis of data to further inform policy analysis, and collective writing and discussions abour China trade terms and their barriers. We aim at comparing their impacts on the trade flow to Australia and Brazil in the commodities sectors. Our project aims at (i) understanding the main trade barriers, mostly non-tariff barriers, faced by Australian and Brazilian commodities exports - such as agricultural goods and mining exports - to China; (ii) mapping the types of regulation supporting those barriers; (iii) identifying if these regulations follow accepted standards of regulation at the international level or if there are features that are particular to China in its standards or decision-making process; and (iv) identifying venues for joint-action by countries such as Australia and Brazil for trade regulation in a scenario of potential economic hegemony. The research will benefit from data and material already collected in previous projects about China and its economic relations with Australia and Brazil, as further described in the project proposal.
