In 2017, Chinese outward FDI witnessed a drop of nearly 30% globally. Despite this however, investment into the EU, and especially into major member states such as Germany, the UK, France, Italy and the Netherlands, continued to grow. When one considers that in the first half of 2018, China invested nine times more into Europe than North America, the popularity of the EU amongst Chinese investors is clear. These trends raise the questions: why do Chinese companies prefer to invest in Europe rather than North America? And what will the tendency of Chinese FDI into Europe be in the future.

This event, organized by the European Institute for Asian Studies alongside the Confucius Institute at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and the Brussels Academy for China and European Studies, invites Chinese experts and the CEO of a European company to discuss these issues at the Asian Platform, from 16:00-18:00 on 27 November 2018. This event will be followed by a networking reception.
