Chinese investment has surged into foreign markets during the first half of 2017, outpacing total first-half spending in each of the past 7 years covered by the China Global Investment Tracker.

  • In contrast to the robust growth in construction contracts during 2014 that favored African countries in particular, Chinese investors have favored foreign direct investment over construction contracts so far in 2015, with OECD member countries the dominant targets.
  • OECD members have struck eight of the top 10 deals, by value, with Chinese investors during the first half of the year.
  • Europe is the only region demonstrating steady, continuous multi-year growth in new investment from China. 

Looking closer at the industry targets for new foreign investment from China, new investment is increasingly diverse. Real estate and finance made substantial gains during the first half, making up about 23 percent by value. Traditional leading industries - energy and transportation - still attracted 59 percent of new total investment despite the total value of new energy industry investment declining compared to the first half of 2016. Total energy industry investment also declined 13 percent between the first halves of 2016 and 2017.
