China's outward FDI stocks by partner country (2010)

Annual OFDI flows from China to Europe have increased substantially since 2008. From 2009 to 2010 they grew by 102% as the ongoing debt crisis made the EU an attractive target for Chinese investors. At the same time, the absolute values remain small compared to Europe’s total inward FDI stock and to China’s entire outward FDI. Of total Chinese outward FDI, about 3.9% was directly invested in the EU in 2010 (see figure 1; more recent figures are not yet available for all EU Member States). It is likely that some of the funds invested in the financial hub Hong Kong and the offshore centres also find their way to the EU.
