Belt and Road a big lure for execs “一带一路”为中国企业带来投资机遇

A major survey shows that over 58 percent of China's executives see big investment opportunities emanating from the Belt and Road Initiative, especially in infrastructure development through building roads, high speed trains and data networks, land use planning, real estate development, urbanization and tourism.


The Belt and Road Initiative, unveiled by President Xi Jinping in 2013, aims to connect China with more than 65 economies through trade and financial integration.


The China section of its global 20th CEO survey, launched by accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) on March 2, also found they regarded the initiative as a key part of their business expansion strategy.


The report was based on a survey of 182 executives based in Chinese mainland and Hong Kong in 2016, covering financial service, technology, retail and manufacturing industries. It indicated that increasing trade cooperation between China and countries along the "Belt and Road" routes is expected to lead to substantial demand in international trade financing services in the banking sector as well.


Charles Chow, lead partner of PwC's Shenzhen office, said companies in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, have shown growing interest to invest in countries along the Belt and Road trading routes.


He noted that small and medium-sized private groups are looking for opportunities with mergers and acquisitions covering various industries, including transportation, logistics and energy.


Last year, the value of capital projects and M&A deals in seven core infrastructure sectors across those economies reached nearly 494 billion U.S. dollars, one third of which was contributed by China, according to a previous report by the global auditing firm.


Rather than using its accounting services, Chow said more and more companies had approached him for investigations into investment targets.


Wang Guoqing, spokesperson for the fifth session of the 12th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, said on March 2 that the initiative had created plenty of revenue and employment for these countries.


He said that it had attracted more than 100 countries to participate and more than 40 of them had signed cooperation agreements. In addition, 56 economic and trade cooperation zones had been set up with cumulative investments totaling 18 billion U.S. dollars.
