Chinese Foreign Investments: Strategy or Pragmatism?

Françoise Lemoine Économiste senior, Cepii.


The importance of Chinese financial foreign investments is raising the following question: do these operations underlie a strategy to conquer the world or are they just responses to the various constraints facing the Chinese authorities and companies? Our opinion is that a deliberate strategy to conquer the world cannot be inferred from Chinese financial activity, especially as it makes the country dependent on its international environment. Chinese foreign investments seem rather to be determined both by China’s economic policies and by the strategy of Chinese companies reacting to the opportunities of the international environment in which they operate.
