Welcome to this week’s issue of China Briefing’s Belt & Road Initiative Weekly Investor Intelligence round up.
We explain why China is likely to remain a favored destination for foreign investment and trends in attracting Chinese ODI, discuss the just-released Negative List, why China invested US$300 million in a Sri Lankan tire factory, a round-up of what international media are saying about the BRI, and on Russia’s increasing diplomatic moves to Asia instead of Europe.
China has been making some significant changes to its economic direction and overall investment policy during the course of 2020, with profound implications for foreign investors in China and for overseas funds and investors looking for Chinese money.
A newly released list provides details of what industry sectors in China foreign investors can access.
Our round-up of 32 foreign news headlines from around the world this past week concerning global Belt & Road developments
Sri Lanka announced the first large-scale Chinese investment in manufacturing in the country last week, a US$300-million tyre factory near the Hambantota deepwater port on the south-East Coast.
As news breaks that the United States is to close its two remaining consular missions in Russia, with the consulates in Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok to close leaving purely the Embassy in Moscow, we can examine the shift of Russian diplomacy to Asia instead of Europe.
