China’s International Investment Law and Policy Regime—Identifying the Three Tracks

(p.1) Introduction
China's International Investment Strategy

Julien Chaisse

Oxford University Press

Being both a capital importing and a capital exporting nation, China must maintain a balance of this dual role through its international investment agreements (IIAs) system, attracting inward foreign direct investment (IFDI) and, at the same time, protecting outward foreign direct investment (OFDI). Accomplishing this balanced objective not only demands strategic planning to maintain a balance between safeguarding its offensive stakes as a supplier of FDI and protecting its defensive stakes as a receiver of FDI, but also requires leadership to introduce IIA discussions that serve national interests, promote regional integration, and contribute to the growth and development of the international investment system. China’s dual role vis-à-vis FDI, owing to its three-prong investment strategies (bilaterally, regionally, and globally), targets the ‘subsequent opening up to the outside and facilitating local reforms’, and is efficiently transforming into the global economy as a reliable rule-maker. This chapter provides a new breakdown and extensive reappraisal of China’s more radical method to international standard-setting through its advanced IIAs programme, which is required in order to enhance China’s global presence in the future. This introduction provides an explanation of the main notion and definitions in respect of China’s tripartite international investment policy..
