China Facts: Why Danish companies should seek a sub-supply solution RE: OBOR

A study by the Center for Strategic and International Studies, reveals that 89 per cent of the contractors in China-funded transport infrastructure projects in 34 Asian and European countries were Chinese companies, leaving only 11 per cent for contractors from elsewhere. In contrast to the overwhelming preference shown to Chinese contractors in China-funded projects, data for projects funded by the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank show a more even distribution (41 per cent of contractors were from countries in which the infrastructure was being built and 30 per cent from third countries according to a study covering 178 projects.*) These statistics show the importance of Danish companies trying to seek partnership agreements with Chinese SOEs. Taking the size of Danish businesses into consideration, such strategy makes a lot of sense.
