Abstract
China’s incorporation into the outward investment trend in the last decade has attracted a lot of attention. The increasing interest of one the largest economy in the world in the EU-27 has, at the same time, raised fears among developed countries on the intentions there are behind. Through a comparison of motivations and sectorial distribution of Chinese MNEs in different parts of the EU-27 together, this study will analyze how much Chinese outward investments differ from the classical theory developed until today. The differences and similarities with other NIEs are also taken upon, emphasizing the role of the government in the direction of Chinese MNEs’ investments.
