Chinese Overseas Investments: Its Impact on the World

Related Tags

Chinese overseas investments around the world are rising rapidly. Chinese firms are investing billions of dollars in Africa, Latin America and Southeast Asia, as well as developed countries like the US and UK. This is accompanied by multi-billion dollar infrastructure projects like railway, roads, dams and ports, built by Chinese companies and financed by Chinese state-owned banks.Beyond pouring money and concrete into many countries, what are the geopolitical implications of China’s huge and growing overseas investments and overseas infrastructure projects? As Chinese investments in the US grow, the economic ties between China and the US will become increasingly close. What are the implications of relations between China and the US for the rest of the world? This talk will be largely based on Toh Han Shih’s recently published book, “Is China an empire?“.
