They had better be prepared. With the projection that Chinese investment in US companies could reach $2 trillion (1.5 trillion euros) in the coming decade, Bloomberg Businessweek magazine recently assembled a panel of experts to explain Sino-American cultural differences and Confucian principles that could get an uninformed American office worker into trouble. The magazine then published a report titled “How to Impress Your Chinese Boss”.

How influential is China’s foreign direct investment in the global economy? Let’s look at the numbers. China’s annual foreign direct investment reached $60 billion in 2010, which made it one of the world’s top 10 investors. In 2011, China’s total global FDI saw a growth of over 14 percent.

By the end of this year, there were 18,000 Chinese firms in 177 countries with a total foreign direct investment of $365 billion and assets totaling $2 trillion. However, Chinese FDI also shows a unique pattern. State-owned firms account for more than 70 percent of the total, and most of the investments are in natural resource projects, largely in low-income countries.

There is some evidence that Chinese FDI has a great impact in these nations.

Among them, Asia and sub-Saharan Africa are the major destinations for roughly 95 percent of the total Chinese FDI. Sub-Saharan nations accounted for 60-70 percent of these investments.

The Chinese private sector’s impact in sub-Saharan nations is slowly gaining importance. A recent survey shows that among the 800 Chinese companies operating in Africa, nearly 85 percent are privately owned and mostly small and medium-sized enterprises. These private firms also play an important role in the local economy.

China’s large State-owned companies generally focus on resources and construction projects, while private ones tend to concentrate on manufacturing and service industries. For construction projects, Chinese State-owned companies prefer to bring in their own workers and rely little on the local labor market.
