Abstract: 
This article introduces a new dataset to understand the emergent trends in Chinese iron ore procurement. The analysis looks the potential benefits Chinese iron ore investors and importers receive from access to state capital; it also assesses whether the provision of Chinese state capital reduces the ability for competitors to access investment opportunities and whether market access has been reduced for foreign iron ore importers.
