China goes global

Chinese overseas direct investment (ODI) … faces the same problem as foreign direct investment into China: the fact that it is a highly politicised subject. FDI (foreign direct investment) in China may have helped create a “non-state” sector, but – as many commentators have pointed out – the line where the state ends and the non-state begins in China can never quite be defined. Foreign investments in China have enjoyed high political status, but the very fact of dealing with the government and the Chinese Communist Party in China’s uniquely politicised environment can complicate or undermine a “purely” business relationship.
