China's outward mergers and acquisitions in the 21st century: motivations, progress and the role of the Chinese government

Hui Tan, Qi Ai

Research output: Contribution to Book/ReportChapter

Abstract

The increasing number of cases of developing country multinational enterprises (MNEs) buying assets from developed countries through merger and acquisition (M&A) calls for more systematic evidences on this area. As a typical and representative developing country, China has already drawn the world's attention with several high-profile cross-border M&As in recent years. By examining the recent evidences of Chinese outward M&A, this chapter reviews the main motivations of outward M&A among state-owned enterprises (SOEs) and non-SOEs, and presents an overall picture of China's outward M&A in the last decade. In doing so, this chapter intends to explore the crucial role played by the Chinese government in orchestrating its internationalization activities and the long-term implications on the competitiveness of Chinese firms in the global marketplace.
