Historically, most Chinese overseas investments involved majority stakes or investments in the resources sector. Such purchases often triggered strong protests and backlash in the West and among various stakeholders. Co-investing with western groups for projects overseas, or doing minority investments, on the other hand, offer distinct advantages.
