Master Class - How China's global buying spree is changing and why? with Professor Paolo Giancane
Chinese tech and consumer companies expanding overseas while real estate retreats. Q2 2017 Chinese outbound investments totaled US$97 billion, a 50% decline from the peak of US$196 billion at the end of 2016. State Administration for Foreign Exchange (SAFE), fearing that cross-border M&A may be used by Chinese groups to move capital offshore, indicated that it will crack down on speculative acquisitions. As such, only strategic acquisitions – i.e. those that have synergies with the buyer’s business at home – will be allowed.
This master class is intended to highlight how this measure is changing the landscape for global M&A and which role China is now playing, as well as the macroeconomic impact of the One Belt One Road strategy, the increasing focus on logistics and technology.
The evening will give you an opportunity to refresh your memories and participate in an engaging masterclass, learn of new developments at the Institution and to meet with current staff. You are very welcome to bring a guest but please add their name at the registration.
