China’s current Five-Year Plan emphasizes a shift to a consumer-based economy. This means there are emerging opportunities for Canadian companies in the agriculture, agri-food, high-tech, clean-tech, life sciences and health care sectors. China is now the second-largest trade partner of Canada.
The evolving face of the Chinese investor
Chinese state-owned enterprises have traditionally been the driving force of foreign investment and are accustomed to acquiring help from business, legal and accounting advisors, as the requirement for corporate governance is increasingly more stringent in North America. The Chinese state-owned Asset Supervision and Administration Commission (SASAC) was established to audit and govern all state-owned enterprises as well.
A significant percentage of private companies in China are already planning to make foreign investments and execute its “going-out” strategy, especially those in the key industries emphasized by the Ministry of Commerce. With private companies already accounting for nearly half of China’s outbound investment in 2011, they are expected to play a greater role going forward.
Private enterprises will definitely play a more and more important role in the process of the nation’s outbound direct investment activities. They will probably surpass state-owned enterprises as the major force of China’s investment wave.
