BRASILIA (Reuters) – Brazilian right-wing President-elect Jair Bolsonaro said on Monday that China is welcome to invest in Brazil and that trade between the two countries could grow.

Bolsonaro’s remarks in a television interview contrasted with his portrayal of China on the campaign trail, when he depicted it as a predator seeking to dominate key sectors of Brazil’s economy. Chinese diplomats met with Bolsonaro on Monday and want him to visit the Asian country as soon as possible, he said.
