This article describes the influx of Chinese investment on Europe. As part of its outbound investments model, Chinese investment has increased multifold.
One problem the Chinese are facing with investment abroad is the presence of labor and environmental laws. Usually, such laws are overlooked in China. Nonetheless, it is likely that investment in Europe will steadily increase.
Still, Europe may be getting in its own way, in that it might be discouraging the Chinese from investing in the EU. The EU has so far been benefitting with the influx of investment, especially into those countries who have been hit the hardest by the debt crisis (the PIGS countries – Portugal, Italy, Greece and Spain). But Europe is unwilling to sell China it’s more advanced technology and does not have much else to offer China.
Regardless, it is clear that private investors are entitled by the reduction in asset prices in Europe, and it is clear that Chinese investment in Europe will increase with time.
