The Centre for Contemporary Chinese Studies is pleased to present the Inaugural Special Seminar on Chinese State Owned Enterprises.

The sustainability of Chinese outbound direct investment in Australia has become a political and geo-strategic issue as national interest and national security concerns compete with business interests for public support.

Based on analysis of the trajectories of Chinese ODI in Australia over the past decade, including pre-investment motivations, industry characteristics, entry strategies, and post-entry integration, Professor Hans Hendrischke will argue that it is imperative to separate strategic and economic fundamentals and depoliticise the foreign investment debate.

Hans Hendrischke is professor of Chinese business and management at the University of Sydney Business School. He leads the School¹s Australia China Business Network and chairs the Business and Economics Cluster of the University¹s China Studies Centre.
