BRASILIA (Reuters) - Following the collapse of the Boeing Co (BA.N) takeover deal, Brazilian jetmaker Embraer SA (EMBR3.SA) should look to partner with China for its mid-range passenger plane unit, Brazil’s Vice President Hamilton Mourao said on Monday.

“It’s a blessing in disguise,” Mourao said online to clients of consultancy Arko Advice. He said the company would stay in Brazilian hands and can deliver a product that China needs as it expands its domestic airline sector. “It’s an inevitable marriage. We have the know-how, they have the demand.”
