China's increased demand for soybeans in recent years has influenced the primarization of its trade partnership with Brazil, which is reflected in the increase in raw material production. This has affected the extensive deforestation of important Brazilian ecosystems, as a consequence of favoring a model of economic development oriented towards the export of products with low added value, such as soybean. Identifying the negative effects of specialization on trade in raw materials gives us a more critical view of the economic model developed in Brazil in recent years, commercial relations with industrial powers and the environmental impacts that are generated by these partnerships. In order to verify the link in the trade relations between Brazil and China, and the environmental impact generated in the Cerrado, Atlantic Forest and Amazon due to soybeans, this research will take into account a theoretical framework that supports a relation between international trade and its impact on the environment, ratified with a historical context oriented to this primary dynamics, and finally through a qualitative analysis, we will study the relationship between the number of hectares exploited for the production of soybeans and the export rates of this product from Brazil to China
