Title: The Arrival of Chinese Investors in Denmark
A Survey of Recent Trends in Chinese FDI in Denmark
Author: Xiwen, Xu; Hansen, Michael Wendelboe
Abstract: China embarked on outward FDI (OFDI) with the advent of economic reforms in 1979 but it was not until 2000 that Chinese OFDI began to grow significantly. By that year, the Chinese government proposed a new national strategy, “Go global” and issued several policy incentives, including simplified procedures for government approval of investments, encouragement of state-owned banks to provide funding for OFDI, and tax incentives for OFDI (Yu & Jiao, 2011). As a result, FDI surged. In recent years, China has challenged the stereotype of being an exporter of cheap products by embarking on massive foreign direct investment (FDI) in both developing and developed countries. And the European Union (EU) is one of the most favored destinations (Hanemann & Huotari, 2015). Especially after 2008, Chinese FDI in EU started to increase rapidly partly fueled by the Eurozone debt crisis which, inter alia, led to depreciating asset prices in the EU (Ma & Overbeek, 2015).
