The outbound investment and acquisitions from China will continue to be a significant force in the coming years, as China's long-term policies and initiatives such as "Made in China 2025" and the Belt and Road Initiative have outbound deals at the core, the report said.
The "Made in China 2025" strategy, a roadmap released by China's State Council in 2015 to guide the country's advanced industrial manufacturing, has seen steady progress in industrial capability, smart manufacturing, innovation, as well as product quality and branding.
Proposed by China in 2013, the Belt and Road Initiative comprises the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, and aims to build a trade and infrastructure network connecting Asia, Africa and Europe along ancient Silk Road trade routes and beyond. ■
