    China’s Outbound Direct Investment

    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.

    Join Andre Loesekrug-Pietri of A Capital as he talks about the image of Chinese investment abroad, and opportunities and challenges for the Chinese companies and the Western firms facilitating the deals.
