Over the past decade, China’s outward foreign direct investment (FDI) has increased substantially and exceeds USD 100 billion, which makes China the world’s third largest overseas investor.
China is now a major player in the global investment market. A growing number of sophisticated and confident Chinese investment companies have entered the global market including Norway. In 2015, Chinese investors invested in hotels, beverages, ICT and renewable energy businesses in Norway.
The focus of China’s outward FDI is also shifting from natural resources such as energy and mining to high technology- and consumption-oriented sectors. Chinese privately owned enterprises (POEs) is also growing and investment from these POEs currently accounts for half of China’s outbound FDI.
