Market Overview

China approved Yuan 1.65 trillion (USD 231 billion) of investment in the railway, urban rail traffic, and airport projects in 2018 75% or Yuan 1.24 trillion of it in the fourth quarter.

13 major cities and provinces, including Beijing, Shanghai and Fujian province, released investment plans and “major infrastructure” projects for 2020. Eight cities and provinces announced their investment budgets, which in total amounts to 33.83 trillion yuan (USD 4.8 trillion).

Key Market Trends

Growing infrastructure in railway:

China has promised to boost its railway freight capacity in order to ease traffic congestion and pollution. The ministry said rail freight volumes rose 7.9 percent in the first three quarters, with deliveries of coal by rail rising around 10 percent.

Rail still only accounted for 8.1 percent of total freight, which amounted to 37.74 billion tonnes over the period, up 7 percent on the year.

Increase in FDI:

Over the last decades, foreign direct investment (FDI) in BRI economies has risen significantly. This rise in FDI inflow has come from a variety of regions, in particular, East Asia Pacific. China alone now accounts for 20% of the total FDI inflows in BRI economies.

A major objective of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is to reduce the time and cost it takes to transport goods and people across BRI economies. Many of these countries face serious gaps in infrastructure, especially related to trade and investment.

There is a significant correlation between construction projects by Chinese firms in other BRI countries and increased direct investment. According to the analysis, a 10% increase in China’s construction activities is associated with an increase in outward FDI from China by 7% in the same year, 11% the next year, and 16% in two years. This suggests that China’s infrastructure activities overseas may serve as a catalyst for Chinese investments in manufacturing or services.
