The 2017 Annual Report on China’s Outbound Direct Investment and Host Country Risks was released by the Institute of World Economy and Politics under the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences on April 10. The report suggests China’s outbound direct investment (ODI) grew rapidly in the past two years, making China the second-largest source country for ODI. However, the three intertwined problems of ethnic and religious factors, changes in geopolitical landscapes and the weak growth and imbalance of global economy have caused increasing risks for all countries, posing great challenge for China’s ODI, according to the report. The report showed confidence in China’s ODI in the mid and long term, indicating there is great potential in regions along the proposed routes of the “Belt and Road” initiative and Latin America.
