Despite the sharp drop in Chinese investment in 2015, Ger-
many is expected to remain an important target country for
Chinese FDI in the years to come and will eventually climb
the ranks again.
As mentioned above, the Chinese Ministry
of Commerce has announced a significant recovery in Chi-
nese investment in Germany for the period fromJanuary to
July 2016. The proj ections prepared by Prognos AG on behalf
of the Bertelsmann Stiftung expect approx. US $4. 3 billion
in Chinese FDI flows to Germany in the year 2025 (1. 5 %of
the expected total volume). Generally, it can
be assumed that the developed countries will remain key
targets for Chinese FDI.
Forecasts suggest that the EU and
the US combined could make up nearly 40percent of annual
investment flows from China by 2025 .
