Chinas outbound direct investment surges to over $134 bn
China's non-financial outbound direct investment surged 53.7 percent to USD 134.22 billion in the first nine months of this year as Chinese firms continued to invest big abroad, the Commerce Ministry said today.

China's non-financial outbound direct investment (ODI) surged 53.7 percent from a year ago to 882.78 billion yuan (USD 134.22 billion) in the January-September period, Shen Danyang, spokesman for the ministry, told media briefing here.

In September alone, China's ODI rose 56.9 percent year on year to USD 16.16 billion.

He attributed the rise in Chinese investments to the Belt and Road (Silk Road) Initiative, saying that it had boosted business cooperation between Chinese and foreign firms.

During the first nine months, 4,191 engineering contracts were signed by Chinese companies in 61 countries along the Belt and Road routes, with combined contract value of USD 74.56 billion, he said.

Chinese firms had invested USD 17.9 billion in 56 economic and trade cooperation zones in 20 countries along the Belt and Road during the same period, creating 163,000 jobs for local people, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

Chinese companies completed 521 overseas mergers and acquisition projects during the first nine months, with the transaction value reaching USD 67.44 billion, surpassing the total amount of last year.

The mergers and acquisitions involved 18 industries in 67 countries and regions, the report said.

Some of the big investments under the Silk Road plan were made in Pakistan under the USD 46 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, officials said.

Contracts worth about USD 13 billion in infrastructure projects were signed during Chinese President Xi Jinping's recent visit to Bangladesh.

China's ODI has also exceeded the Foreign direct investment (FDI) into the country.

During the first eight months of 2016 the FDI arrivals increased to 4.5 percent year on year to USD 85.9 billion, according to the Ministry of Commerce of China.
