China Buying Companies and Properties in Amidst of Covid19

Despite the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have an impact on global economies and businesses, Chinese companies have increased their efforts to acquire or invest in distressed foreign assets in strategic locations. Against this backdrop, governments in a number of countries are concerned about China's move, according to Global Data.

The covid 19 has made things more complicated for the property sector as well as the financial sector. The momentum China has picked up has put the EU and America at the bridge. Making changes in FDI policy or bearing the inflow of China’s strategic buy-outs.

The main stride we will be focusing on, can be summarized as:

  • Due to the pandemic and political tensions, Chinese purchases of US property priced at US$2.5 million and above fell by roughly two-thirds through June.
  • Mainlanders' purchases of residential real estate will drop by up to 50% this year, according to a Knight Frank analyst.

China FDI Scares the Trembling Economies

The Chinese companies went on a buying spree where the industry giants were ready to feast on the economically fragile companies and properties.

According to data from the real estate consultancy, the sales volume of US property valued at least US$2.5 million purchased with Chinese capital fell by 68.1 percent year on year in the first six months to US$314 million. Large cities, such as New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, saw the greatest drop in investment.

“Chinese companies’ acquisition of distressed foreign assets at a much cheaper price during COVID-19 pandemic remains an area of concern with governments across several countries tightening their foreign direct investment (FDI) policies.”

The European Union was a pioneer in tightening oversight of foreign investments. Germany, Spain, France, and Italy have already enacted legislation to protect domestic companies from hostile takeovers and investments. Similarly, Australia tightened its foreign investment rules.

“With the majority of the big companies in China being state-owned, governments worldwide are seeing these investments as a potential threat and politically motivated move.”

The FDI Clutch in Pakistan

According to the report, China is by far the largest contributor of FDI to Pakistan. The Pakistani government separates Chinese investment in the $60 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), a key component of China's state-led Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), from non-CPEC investments.

According to analysts, non-CPEC Chinese private investment in Pakistan is increasingly motivated by low labor costs and gaining access to raw materials that are shipped back to Chinese factories. China is also constructing factories in Pakistan in order to export finished goods directly to European markets that it hopes to be more easily accessible through its BRI infrastructure investments.

Chinese investors are also preparing to invest in a number of loss-making state-owned enterprises (SOEs) that the government has indicated a desire to sell. SOE-related losses recently surpassed the 1.5 trillion rupees ($9.4 billion) mark, surpassing the country's annual defense budget.
