From a developed country perspective it will address the importance of Chinese ODI in the global economy; why Chinese ODI is growing in developed nations; what the host country policy and political reactions towards Chinese FDI have been; and how Chinese investors have reacted to the experience of investing in developed countries.

In terms of ODI to developing countries this session will examine why Chinese ODI is occurring in developing countries; its economic and social impact; host country policy and political reaction to Chinese ODI; the economic opportunities arising from Chinese ODI in developing countries; and what needs to be done by China and host economies to ensure its benefits.

This forum is cosponsored by The Australian National University, Columbia Business School's Chazen Institute of International Business, Columbia University's APEC Study Center and the Vale Columbia Center on Sustainable International Investment.
