Both parties agreed to stabilize the trade scale, optimize the trade structure, and establish a working group for promoting service trade under the economic and trade subcommittee of the China-Brazil High-Level Coordination and Cooperation Committee to expand service trade. The Chinese side stands ready to import more high-quality products from Brazil, including manufactured goods, and welcomes more eligible Brazilian meat enterprises to register in China.

Both parties agreed to continue to enhance cooperation in science and technology, education, culture, health care and other cultural and people-to-people fields, to officially establish an exchange and cooperation mechanism in scientific and technological parks, to jointly launch the research and development for China-Brazil Earth Resources Satellite 04A, and to set up a health care subcommittee under the mechanism of the China-Brazil High-level Coordination and Cooperation Committee to promote cooperation in heath care.
