    Mercopress is unclear:

    Are there Chinese tariff barriers against the Brasilian small E-190 domestic jet *imported as a Brasilian-assembled, fully operational aeroplane*?
    Or are the price differentials simply related to the two country's salary levels?

    Does Embraer simply wants to produce in China to reduce production costs - and then sell the products on the world markets?
    Or all the assembled planes intended for the China market?

    If the Chinese exports to Brasil are being sold to Brasil 'below the cost of manufacture' and transportation, does this include or exclude the 60% tariff imposed by Brasil?
    If Brasil's outcome of this trade round is the removal of tariffs on her imports, how will this benefit the home industries?

    Is the debate with China concerning allowing importation of cutting-edge technological products into China a win, or a win-win, or a sadly academic outcome? Because where are these Brasilian cutting-edge products?
