This work discusses the dynamics of China's outward foreign direct investments, particularly those destined to South America. After more than three decades of intensive economic growth and a sound increase in its share in world trade, the Chinese economy is increasing investments abroad. The Chinese trade movement in South America has substantially changed the importance of the region's traditional trade partners and affected the Brazilian influence over the region. The inflow of Chinese direct investment, although still tiny, points out towards a similar path of influence, especially in the exploitation of raw materials and food. Hence, China reinforces both by trade and investment inflows, the region's economies characteristic reliance on the supply of primary products
