2016 is the busiest year ever for Chinese outbound mergers & acquisitions (M&A), with year-to-date transaction volumes having already surpassed that of full-year 2015’s. This talk will discuss the background and drivers of the recent surge in China’s outbound M&A activity, and will attempt to address the question of whether the recent spike in transaction volumes is sustainable in the medium-long term or not.
This presentation is co-sponsored by the Committee on International Relations (CIR).
