How Chinese Investment is Shaping European Markets?

Since joining the WTO fifteen years ago, China has greatly broadened its economic engagement with Europe and other parts of the world. Chinese foreign direct investment (FDI) in Europe has shifted in recent years from a focus on acquiring resources to one on services and consumer goods in developed market economies. However, asymmetrical market access is a growing concern for the EU, given that Chinese investment in Europe is expanding in economic sectors that are not open to foreign investors in China. Shi Zhiqin will moderate a discussion between Xavier Richet and Chen Xin on how Chinese outbound FDI is shaping market conditions in EU member states as well as Chinese firms’ efforts to integrate into global value chains. This event is co-hosted by the Carnegie–Tsinghua Center for Global Policy.
