"Assessing the impact of an EU-China investment agreement"
by Francois, Joseph

In July 2010, the European Commission adopted the Communication "Towards a comprehensive European international investment policy", which explores main orientations of the future EU investment policy and main parameters for immediate action in this area. It also identifies certain key trading partners with whom new investment agreements could be particularly desirable in order to improve the investment environment and legal certainty for European investors. China is one of the countries identified.

While foreign direct investment (FDI) generally is at present heavily concentrated among developed economies, European investors are seeking to invest increasingly in emerging economies, in particular in China, one of the key emerging economies in the world. While China is one of the most important future destinations for EU foreign direct investment (FDI), it does not offer the most open, predictable and secure environment to investors, both from a pre-establishment and post-establishment perspective.
