China's Minister of science and technology Wang Zhigang and Brazil's Minister of science, technology, innovation and communications Luciana Santos signed a memorandum of understanding to promote future sci-tech cooperation on April 14.

Through this pact, the two sides wish to explore new channels for cooperation in science and technology and industrial innovation research, and further promote the development levels of science and technology and the well-being of people in both countries in the form of joint research and exchange visits of scientists, according to the Ministry of Science and Technology.

Since the establishment of diplomatic ties in 1974, the two countries have garnered fruitful results through bilateral cooperation in the fields of space, climate change, forestry and energy.

In April 2010, the Tsinghua-UFRJ China-Brasil Center for Climate Change and Energy Technology Innovation was established to conduct joint research in clean energy and tackling climate change.

The sixth meeting of the China-Brazil High-level Coordination and Cooperation Committee in May 2022 saw agreements reached on cooperation in the space sector including promotion of the China-Brazil Earth Resources Satellite program.

That year also marked the 40th anniversary of the signing of the cooperation agreement in science and technology between the two countries.

According to Santos, Brazil's biofuel technology and China's new energy vehicle industry are at world leading levels, and the two countries have great potential for cooperation in addressing climate change, strengthening ecological and environmental protection, and developing new energy sources.
