Storyline


China's non-financial outbound direct investment (ODI) grew 24.1 percent in the first quarter from the same period last year, official data showed Monday.

Domestic investors made 25.5 billion U.S. dollars of non-financial ODI in 2,023 overseas enterprises in 140 countries and regions for January-March, which has continued to grow for five consecutive months, the Ministry of Commerce (MOC) said.

"During the first quarter of 2018, we are seeing a great beginning for outbound investment and economic cooperation. Our investment towards the countries along the Belt and Road has been steadily moving forward," remarked Han Yong, commercial counselor of Department of Outward Investment and Economic Cooperation under the MOC.

He further pointed out that during the first quarter, China's companies made new investments to 52 countries along the Belt and Road, adding up to 3.61 billion U.S. dollars with a year-on-year increase of 22.4 percent. And it accounts for 14.2 percent of the total over the same period, which is 1.4 percentage points higher than that in January-February.

Furthermore, among the newly-signed contracted foreign projects, large-scaled projects have been the majority, which became a driving force for improving exports.

"During the first quarter, there were 158 newly-signed contracted foreign projects with contract values over 50 million U.S. dollars. The total value of these contracts reached 37.42 billion U.S. dollars, accounting for 83.9 percent of the newly-signed contracts. Foreign contractual projects have contributed to goods exports with a value of 3.94 billion U.S. dollars, with a year-on-year increase of 12.9 percent," said Han.
