Voice from China – 2nd edition 2018

QUARTERLY UPDATE ON THE M&A MARKET IN CHINA:

Uncertainty in M&A markets remains as trade tensions between the US and China escalate and the US government steps up its efforts to restrict certain types of foreign investment and the outbound flow of technology. We are already witnessing the results with a sharp drop in Chinese outbound investments to the US during the first half of 2018.

Most likely, these developments will have a lasting impact on China’s business growth and economic direction. In response, the Chinese government is focusing on cultivating new markets and aligning more closely with its European and Asian trading partners.

John Zhang, our local Oaklins specialist, elaborates on the headwinds to a possible rebound and gives an overview of China’s cross-border landscape.
