During the two-day event, executives from more than 150  of China’s most active state-owned and private companies, responsible for investment decisions in the Middle East and North Africa, attended the Investment forum. Our booth attracted a lot of domestic investors and private companies for consultations on various ODI projects.

Speech on Outbound Investment

To begin with, Vivian provided an overview of the current circumstances by comparing China’s outbound direct investment amounts in the last 4 years and the different channels of outbound funds.

Vivian then interpreted and discussed key points on the regulations governing ODI, basic establishment structures, and filing procedures.

Her presentation also included case studies and common investor concerns.

Panel Discussion on Chinese Investment Flows

Promoted by the ‘Going Global Strategy’ and ‘The Belt and Road Initiative’, China’s ODI in these countries have developed significantly in 2018, reaching over US$ 15 Billion – an increase of 8.9 percent over the previous year.

During the panel discussion hosted by Vivian, panellists provided updates on regional insights associated with the BRI ecosystem and explored how Chinese investors can position themselves to seize a widening range of investment opportunities.
