El cenit de esta situación lo encontramos en esta interesante nota de La Nación.
Leyendo la nota nos enteramos que mientras Pimentel, ministro de Desarrollo, Industria y Comercio Exterior brasileño, se queja de las trabas que las politica comercial argentina le pone a las exportaciones brasileras, Brasil trata de regular al máximo las compras de autos chinos.
"The prominence of the location is appropriate: imported Chinese cars have suddenly become a visible presence on Brazil’s roads. This has alarmed Brazil’s car industry and President Dilma Rousseff’s government. Last month a 30-percentage-point tax increase on cars with less than 65% local content took effect, taking the tax on some imported models to a punitive 55%—on top of import tariffs.
The tax increase is an unusually blatant act of protectionism. It almost certainly violates the rules of the World Trade Organisation, of which Brazil is normally an enthusiastic supporter. It shows how sensitive the government of President Dilma Rousseff is to claims that the country is suffering “de-industrialisation”.
