Executive summary: Chinese investors’ confidence report under the context of CAI

June 2022

Since the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the EU, the two sides have actively carried out exchanges at all levels and in various fields, and the results of cooperation have been fruitful. Affected by factors such as geography, history, culture and external forces, although China-EU relations are not an easy path, they are generally on a benign development track. Against the backdrop of changes in a century and the epidemic of the century, China and the EU attach great importance to the development of bilateral economic and trade cooperation and actively promote the conclusion of the China-EU comprehensive investment agreement (hereinafter referred to as the "Agreement") in December 2020.

In 2021, the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade commissioned PwC China to conduct a special survey to understand the current situation and expectations of Chinese enterprises in Europe, policy demands and service needs, as well as the implementation expectations of Chinese enterprises and EU enterprises in China. A total of 512 enterprises, EU enterprises in China and other foreign-funded enterprises in China participated in the survey, and based on the survey, the "China-EU Comprehensive Investment Agreement Implementation Outlook Research Report" was finally formed.

In view of the fact that the agreement has not yet been formally signed, this report is only a phased research result for two-way investment between China and the EU in the context of the completion of the negotiation of the agreement. The results of this survey are more consistent with the investment market situation in China and Europe that we have observed, and we hope that the relevant findings and suggestions can bring certain inspiration and reference value to Chinese and European enterprises to lay out overseas markets in advance and prepare for the application of the rules of the agreement.
