China Makes an Oil Deal With Brazil

Brasilia, Brazil


While the Western nations are having problems, some places are continuing to take steps to greatly improve their economic futures.  Notice the following:

Brazil agrees to supply crude oil to China

Associated Press

BRASILIA (AP_ Brazil says it has agreed to supply up to 100 million barrels of crude oil a day to China in a deal that involves a loan of up to $10 billion.

The agreement was announced Thursday after President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva met with Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping.

A memorandum of understanding says Brazil’s state-run energy company Petrobras will supply the crude, which will be refined by two Chinese state-owned enterprises, China Petroleum & Chemical Corp. and the China National Petroleum Corp.

Local media say Petrobras Brasileiro SA will use the loan to develop deep-water oil reserves recently discovered off the Brazilian coast. But Petrobras Chief Executive, Jose Sergio Gabrielli says the money could be used for other purposes.

(Note: The AP reporter apparently got the quantities too high as other reports state that in addition to the exploration partnership, the deal signed between Petrobras and Sinopec includes the supply of 60,000 to 100,000 barrels of oil per day in the current year.)

China and Brazil are both emerging as nations that are becoming major economic players on the world scene.

China has money and industrial capacity now, and Brazil has resources, as well as industrial capacities of its own.  These nations, despite problems that they have (and will experience) are biblically expected to do much better than the Anglo-American nations during the great tribulation.

While in the past, one would think a nation like the USA would be lending Brazil money, the USA instead has to also borrow money from China.

The era of Anglo-American dominance is not yet over, but is coming to an end.
