Since China’s accession to the WTO in 2001, the Chinese government’s original strategy of progressively opening up to attract foreign investment has resulted in capital flowing out as fast as it comes in. This book discusses cross-border mergers and acquisitions (M&A) by Chinese companies, mainly to clarify their strategies and the effect of their M&A at an international level. Chien-Hsun Chen and Hui-Tzu Shih also explore the
strategies and considerations of both Chinese and international companies – including those from Taiwan – who conduct M&A in China. This is an invaluable study on the acquisition and transfer of technology, branding and marketing channels within the context of competitive cooperation on development targets for foreign, Taiwanese and Chinese companies. Critical points of discussion include China’s policy changes and Chinese companies as well as the M&A strategies of international companies in the Chinese marketplace.
Mergers and Acquisitions in China will be a fascinating read for multinational enterprise managers, brokers, dealers and investors. The in-depth analysis will prove invaluable for scholars and researchers of business economics, international economics and Chinese studies.
