November 20, 2020


Abstract : China's non-financial outbound direct investment (ODI) declined 3.2 percent year on year in the first 10 months of 2020, official data showed on Thursday.

BEIJING, Nov. 19 (Xinhua) -- China's non-financial outbound direct investment (ODI) declined 3.2 percent year on year in the first 10 months of 2020, official data showed on Thursday.

ODI amounted to 602 billion yuan (about 86.38 billion U.S. dollars) over the period, according to the Ministry of Commerce.

China added a total of 14.1 billion U.S. dollars in non-financial ODI in countries participating in the Belt and Road Initiative, up 23.1 percent year on year. The figure accounts for 16.3 percent of all ODI during the period, up 3.6 percentage points from the same period last year.

Major overseas engineering projects increased in the first 10 months. The total contract value of newly signed overseas projects came in at 1.16 trillion yuan for the January-October period, down 4.4 percent year on year.

The number of newly signed overseas projects with contract values exceeding 50 million U.S. dollars was at 590, among which 331 have contract values above 100 million U.S. dollars, four more than the same period last year.

Outbound investment from local enterprises has risen. From January to October, ODI from local enterprises hit 62.75 billion dollars, up 11.7 percent year on year.

Some sectors have seen robust growth in terms of the contract value of their overseas projects. The total value of newly signed contracts for general construction projects stood at 40.48 billion U.S. dollars, surging 36.8 percent year on year, while the value of new contracts for electric power projects rose 10.8 percent to 39.24 billion U.S. dollars.
