By Philipp Trimborn

Dieser schwierige Übergang von der Agrarwirtschaft zur industriellen Gesellschaft konnte nicht ohne die Hilfe von ausländischem Kapital und information geschafft werden und so hat sich China in den letzten drei Jahrzehnten zu einem der weltweit größten Empfänger von ausländischen Direktinvestitionen (Foreign Direct Investments, im Folgenden auch FDI genannt) nach den united states entwickelt.
Während jedoch zu Beginn des Reformprozesses insbesondere die günstigen Produktionsbedingungen ausländische Investoren anzogen, so gewann in den letzten Jahren China selbst mit seinen ca. 1,3 Mrd. Einwohnern zunehmend auch als Absatzmarkt an Bedeutung. Kein overseas operierendes Unternehmen kann es sich heute noch erlauben, in China nicht vertreten zu sein. Es verwundert folglich nicht, dass es der Volksrepublik China seit der Marktöffnung gelungen ist, eine Vielzahl ausländischer Investoren ins Land zu locken. Das kürzliche Zusammentreffen von Angela Merkel mit dem Dalai Lama verschlechterte das politische Klima zwischen Deutschland und China. Die öffentlichkeitswirksame und teils harsche Kritik der nervösen deutschen Unternehmer in der Presse am polischen Kurs Merkels zeugen von einer gestiegenen Bedeutung auch der deutschen Direktinvestitionen in der Volksrepublik China.
Das bis ins Jahre 2006 angesammelte Kapitalvolumen ausländischer Investoren in Höhe von 292,6 Mrd. US-$ ist heute in der Tat von einem solchen Umfang, dass eine Untersuchung der Zusammensetzung und die Gründe für diese Entwicklung der FDI – Ströme nach China von Interesse ist.
Das Hauptaugenmerk des Autors der Arbeit liegt hierbei auf der examine der Entwicklung der FDI in shape von grenzüberschreitenden Fusionen und Unternehmensübernahmen (Crossborder Merger and Aquisition, im Folgenden auch M&A genannt), da diese shape am Gesamtkapitalvolumen der FDI weltweit die größte Bedeutung hat.
Kapitel 1 befasst sich mit den unterschiedlichen Arten der FDI und den Bestimmungs-gründen für diese aus Sicht der Investoren. Über dies hinaus gibt das Kapitel einen kurzen
Überblick über die Entwicklung der FDI – Daten weltweit und speziell in China.
