China Facts: More Chinese Investments in Europe to Come

An analysis "Chinese FDI in Europe in 2017: Rapid recovery after initial slowdown" produced by MERICS finds that  Europe clearly remains open to Chinese investment despite growing discussions about the need to better protect critical infrastructure. At 30 billion EUR, Chinese foreign direct investment in the 28 EU economies was at the second highest level ever recorded in 2017. The largest recipients of Chinese investment were transportation, utilities and infrastructure (15.3 billion EUR), information and communication technologies (4.8 billion EUR) and real estate and hospitality (2.9 billion EUR). Strong Chinese investment in the EU is likely to continue in 2018
