Research on Chinese investment in Australia written collaboratively with the University of Sydney China Studies Centre.
Research by KPMG Australia with the University of Sydney China Studies Centre.
KPMG and The University of Sydney formed a strategic relationship to research and publish insights on doing business with Chinese investors. Our first report was launched in September 2011 and this is the fifteenth Demystifying Chinese Investment report in our series. This report examines Chinese investment in Australia for the calendar year 2018 and incorporates the latest Chinese Investors in Australia Survey. This special edition provides timely, new insights into the perceptions of the Australian investment climate by Chinese investors as well as the key challenges they feel they face in Australia.
The catalyst for our report series was the lack of detailed factual information about the nature and distribution of China’s outbound direct investment (ODI) in Australia. Without this information, there is misinformation and speculation. Our reports seek to set the record straight and debunk the myths associated with Chinese investment in this country.
The dataset is compiled jointly by KPMG and The University of Sydney Business School and covers investments into Australia made by entities from the People’s Republic of China through mergers and acquisitions (M&A), joint ventures (JV) and greenfield projects. Knight Frank has provided data and analysis on real estate transactions in the 2018 calendar year.
