Chinese Foreign InvestmentMotivations and implications of foreign investments by Chinese SoEs
Dr Hao Tan of the Newcastle Business School has published an article in the Financial Times Chinese. In the article Dr Tan comments on the motivations and implications of foreign investments by Chinese SoEs, and in particular the potential investment of a large Chinese SoE in NSW's poles and wires if the government's privatisation plan goes ahead, a matter that attracted a lot of controversies during the recent NSW election.

Dr Tan argues that given the concerns in both host and home countries, a commercial case needs to be made for foreign investments by SoEs. In other words, like those by private firms, foreign investments by SoEs should be primarily based on either exploitation benefits (i.e. the advantages they have built in the domestic market), exploration benefits (i.e. new knowledge and capabilities they are seeking in foreign locations), or both, in order to gain better supports from various stakeholders.
