The present invention provides a resin composition containing (A) an ethylene-vinyl alcohol copolymer and (B) an unsaturated aldehyde (B), in which the content of the unsaturated aldehyde (B) with respect to the resin composition containing the ethylene-vinyl alcohol copolymer is 0.01 ppm or more and 100 ppm or less. The unsaturated aldehyde (B) is preferably crotonaldehyde, 2,4-hexadienal, 2,4,6-octatrienal or a combination thereof. In addition, it is preferred that the resin composition further contains a boron compound, and the content of the boron compound is 100 ppm or more and 5,000 ppm or less. Also, it is preferred that the resin composition further contains a conjugated polyene compound, and the content of the conjugated polyene compound is 0.01 ppm or more and 1,000 ppm or less.

Provided is a heat-resistant resin composite excellent in heat resistance and bending properties. This heat-resistant resin composite is constituted of a matrix resin and reinforcing fibers dispersed in the matrix resin. The matrix resin is constituted of a heat-resistant thermoplastic polymer having a glass transition temperature of 100 C. or higher, and a polyester-based polymer comprising a terephthalic acid unit (A) and an isophthalic acid unit (B) at a copolymerization proportion (molar ratio) of (A)/(B)=100/0 to 40/60. The proportion of the heat-resistant thermoplastic polymer in the composite is 30 to 80 wt %.
