China’s meteoric rise as an economic superpower is the story of the 21st century. China is now a major player in the world FDI market and an ever more visible source of investment into the Nordics. With Chinese investment into the Nordics yet to peak, the Nordic business community (you!) can only benefit from a deeper understanding of China’s economic and political trajectory.
Welcome to this breakfast seminar on Chinese investment and the Nordics. During the seminar experts in the field, Klas Eklund and Kristina Sandklef, will discuss the macro-economic and political push factors behind Chinese outbound investment and address where that investment goes in the Nordics, the consequences, and what to expect going forward.
