Chapter 5: Patterns and characteristics of Chinese contracts: an empirical study across Asia

Yi Feng, Zhijun Gao and Wanjun Jiang


This chapter studies the determinants of China’s contracts in Asia. It examines the following five categories as the sources of the determinants for Chinese contracts: macroeconomic performance, natural resources, political environment, foreign relations with China, and, finally, location. In this cross-country analysis, the authors find that Chinese contractors are likely to go to a country that has a large population or GDP, good economic growth and an accelerating economy, abundant oil reserves, low rent for natural resources, and a relatively effective government with some political openness. This country is likely to be a member of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN); at the same time, territorial disputes with China are likely to affect Chinese contracts in the future.
