One of the basic features of the recent international scenario is the increasing importance of a few emerging economies. In this paper we map the import tariffs imposed by each of the BRICS on the products from its neighboring countries, as well as the tariffs imposed on Brazilian products. We aim at identifying whether the conditions met by Brazilian products on their access to the markets of the other BRICS and to their neighbors are different from the conditions provided by each BRIC to its neighbors as well as to those each BRIC meets on its neighboring markets.
