Countries along Belt & Road become China's investment priorities, MOC report

Countries along the Belt and Road routes have become China's investment priorities, according to a report about China's outbound investment of 2018 recently released by the Ministry of Commerce (MOC).

According to the report, in 2017, China's investment in the countries along the Belt and Road amounted to 14.36 billion US dollars, accounting for 12 percent of the country’s total non-financial outbound direct investment, 3.5 percentage points higher than the previous year.

The report predicted China's outbound investment in 2018 to maintain stable and orderly development.

In recent years, China has actively innovated outbound investment methods, improved investment quality and efficiency, strengthened supervision services, and guided enterprises to prevent and resolve overseas risks.

In the first half of 2018, China conducted non-financial direct investment in 3,617 overseas enterprises in 151 countries and regions, with an accumulated investment of 57.18 billion U.S. dollars, an increase of 18.7 percent year on year, said the report.
