Euro-China Investment Report 2011-2012 The European landscape of Chinese enterprises

Euro-China Investment Report 2011-2012

An analysis of corporate and entrepreneurial firms and the role of the ethnic communities.
Based on an extensive firm level database, this study attempts to describe and analyse the presence of Chinese companies in Europe and to provide some insights into several important aspects of Chinese multinational enterprises.

The report provides on the one hand an overview about the recent development and trends of Chinese outward foreign direct investment (FDI) on the basis of balance of payments data, while on the other hand the Amadeus pan European database is used to pull out information about the ownership, corporate governance, business operations and financial situation of 4,676 Chinese companies located in 28 European countries.
 Based on this extensive firm level database, this study attempts to describe and analyse the presence of Chinese companies in Europe and to provide some insights into several important aspects of Chinese multinational enterprises, which have rarely been explored before as most existing studies concentrate on the larger outward Chinese investors and their merger and acquisition activity, and as such present a somewhat biased picture of Chinese investments abroad and in Europe.
