In 2017, a combination of Chinese state-owned and private corporations’ FDI to Europe totaled over $23 billion and that included Switzerland and Norway as well as the European Union. That number was $8 billion more than Chinese FDI to the United States. However, in the latest report authored by Baker McKenzie data suggests that Chinese FDI to the West may be slowing. With that said, new Chinese investment increased by 28 percent in 2015 based upon the $18 billion in Chinese FDI to Europe in 2014. Though the 28 percent increase in Chinese FDI to Europe in 2015 was impressive, the 2014 Chinese FDI to Europe represented a 100 percent increase over 2013 (Jones 2016).
