Unit 2 Case Study

Based off of : The Myth Behind China’s Outward Foreign Direct Investment answer the following questions

1. Using data from the most recent year, what is the flow of China’s FDI into your country? What is the stock of China’s in your country? Relative to other countries whose multinationals undertake FDI in your country, what is China’s ranking—in both flow and stock—relative to other countries

2. Compare the flow (in the most recent year) and stock of FDI from your country in China versus the flow and stock of FDI from China in your country. Which is bigger? Why?

3. Why has China’s OFDI received such sensational (but often unsubstantiated) media reporting regarding its scale and scope

4.Identify the largest FDI project (in terms of dol-lar amount) undertaken by Chinese multination- als in your country. Evaluate its pros and cons, and discuss whether its advantages to the host economy (that is, your country) outweigh the disadvantages.
