Description

Foreign direct investment (FDI) can have positive economic effects on the target country. For example, they create jobs and bring fresh capital into the country. Many countries therefore welcome FDI. But the increase in Chinese company M&A transactions in Germany has recently steered suspicion. What is behind the increased interest in "Made in Germany"? And in which industries do Chinese companies invest most frequently? A study by the Bertelsmann Stiftung has analyzed Chinese M&A transactions in Germany in recent years.
