China’s International Investment Strategy
Bilateral, Regional, and Global Law and Policy
International Economic Law Series

Edited by Julien Chaisse

9780198827450
This collection, compiled by award-winning scholar Professor Julien Chaisse, explores the three distinct tracks of China’s investment policy and strategy: bilateral agreements including those with the US and the EU; regional agreements including the Free Trade Area of the Asia Pacific; and global initiatives, spear-headed by China’s presidency of the G20 and its ‘Belt and Road initiative’. The book’s overarching topic is whether these three tracks compete with each other, or whether they complement one another – a question of profound importance for the country’s political and economic future and world investment governance.

Features

• Combines legal, economic and international relations perspectives, to provide a comprehensive analysis of the subject
• Brings together a group of experts in the field, exploring the most recent issues in international trade law
• A variety of illustrations support and elucidate the contributors’ arguments.
