China's great investment transition

After years of being a foreign investment recipient, China's outward investment is starting to gather steam. But how large and fast will Beijing allow it to grow and what will be its defining charateristics?

For years, China has been one of the world’s largest recipient countries of foreign direct investment. In 2010, however, its outward direct investment (ODI) reached an unprecedented US$68 billion and China became the world’s fifth-largest overseas investor. China’s cumulative ODI of US$310 billion is still relatively small compared with its cumulative FDI of US$1.5 trillion. But Chinese ODI will undoubtedly become more important in the near future, as the Ministry of Commerce expects annual outward investment to outpace FDI by 2015.
