2015-04-13 Chinese Investments in Europe
   2015-04-13 10:04:22    CRIENGLISH.com      Web Editor: Ding Heng

UK is the most popular destination in Europe for investors from Chinese mainland, drawing 23.6 billion US dollars from 2005 to 2014.

If advanced economies have become a new investment hotspot for China, European nations would be prime destinations among them. Open business environment, a legion of cash-strapped brand names and technology-driven companies, and more recently, a cheap Euro are all factors at play. Quite recently, the China National Chemical Corporation has agreed to buy a stake in Italian tire maker Pirelli and launch a bid for the rest. If all are successful, this would represent another major deal clinched by Chinese companies in Europe. But this will be far from the last major deal in recent China-Europe business cooperation as one may expect.

So how do Chinese and European experts assess growing Chinese investments in Europe? As Chinese investors make further headways in Europe, what issues do they have to bear in mind?
