In 2007, Chinese companies expanded overseas, as did investors. On the other side, foreign investment swarmed into the Chinese capital market. Financial Times writers summarized this year’s trend on China going global and global investors going to China. From The Financial Times:
Any takeover battle or asset sale these days is certain to spur speculation about a possible bidder from China, with Chinese companies or government agencies over the past few months involved in investment in some of the best-known names in international finance.
As the flurry of investments adds to a sense that the geopolitical axis is shifting, FT writers take a look at whether there is such a thing as “The Big Red Chequebook”, as one headline put it, and to what extent the deals are a relentless, government-led strategy of international expansion.
