Belt and Road – exploring a blueprint for steady growth in overseas investment
Ernst & Young
In 2017, disclosed deal value of China overseas mergers and acquisitions dropped to US$144.8 billion, down by 32% year on year. Despite a significant decline in Chinese overseas M&As, deal value in automotive and transportation, power and utilities, oil and gas and life sciences sectors posted a year on year increase, while technology, media and telecommunications and diversified industrial products ranked the first two sectors by deal volume for two consecutive years. That shows even though the scale of China outbound investment decreased in 2017, investments in real economy still keep a steady momentum.
