China Global Investment Tracker
Editor’s note: The value of China’s overseas investment and construction combined since 2005 exceeds $2 trillion. In 2019, the average size of Chinese construction deals overseas shrank, and investment fell outright. Greenfield investment and the Belt and Road Initiative became relatively more important within a smaller Chinese footprint overall. The US has restricted China’s acquisitions, and several other rich countries did so less formally.
The China Global Investment Tracker (CGIT) is the only comprehensive public data set covering China’s global investment and construction, which are documented both separately and together. Inaugurated in 2005, the CGIT now includes over 3,300 large transactions across energy, transportation, real estate, and other industries, as well as 300 troubled transactions. The full list, with the amount, Chinese parent company, host country, and sector, is available for public use with the proper citation. The tracker is published by the American Enterprise Institute.
