China Goes Global: How China’s Overseas Investment is Transforming its Business Enterprises
Huiyao Wang & Lu Miao 2016 Palgrave Macmillan

Mainland China businesses are going global, transforming the country from a manufacturing export platform into an overseas investment powerhouse. China Goes Global is the most thorough and up-to-date empirical analysis of the accelerating effort of Chinese companies to go global by investing overseas. It details the overall trends of this activity with respect to its sectors, channels, overseas targets, and particular firms, along the role of Chinese Government policy in facilitating business enterprise globalization. The book offers readers an enterprise level of view outward expansion by Chinese firms that is focused not only on the big-names, but also less well-known, but equally important trailblazing enterprises. In doing so it offers practical suggestions on how firms can tackle the challenges encountered when expanding outward.

Editorial Reviews

“As China seeks to upgrade its economic growth model by globalizing its business enterprises, we need to examine carefully and sum up the experiences of internationalization success stories that can serve as models to guide Chinese enterprises trying to go global. It is with these aims in mind that CCG and the Chinese International Economic Cooperation Society has under taken and published this comprehensive research project on the globalization of Chinese business enterprises. This book is very useful for firms intending to go global. I hope CCG will continue this research and provide intellectual support for the Chinese companies seeking to deepen their international footprint.” – Cao Dawang, Vice Chairman, Center for China & Globalization Strategic Advisory Board, Founder and Chairman, Fuyao Automotive Glass, China
