Direct foreign investment in China has grown rapidly, but what about DFI by China in other countries?
Is such investment a growing trend or isolated instances? What are the pros and cons of both types of DFI relative to China?
Consider the recent agreement by Cnooc, a large Chinese offshore-oil producer, to buy OPTI Canada.
What are the advantages/disadvantages to both China and Canada? Has China invested in the country of Nigeria?
If so, what type of investment?
