Foreign direct investment in S.Korea tops $15BN this year / YTN
 
00:52
Foreign direct investment in South Korea has surpassed the 15 billion-dollar mark this year for the first time ever, due mainly to a free trade pact with China and more favorable business circumstances. The Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy said that as of Tuesday, the amount of FDI into the country reached 15.19 billion dollars, a 28.6 percent rise from a year earlier. The total FDI pledged from January onwards also topped the 20 billion-dollar mark for the first time ever. The ministry attributed the sharp gain in FDI to the free trade agreement with China that was officially signed on June 1, and improvements in the business outlook in the country, as well as large-scale investments by Middle Eastern and U.S. investors into local companies. ▶ 기사 원문 : http://www.ytn.co.kr/_pn/1207_201512241010251057 ▶ 제보 안내 : http://goo.gl/gEvsAL, 모바일앱, [email protected], #2424 ▣ YTN 유튜브 채널 구독 : http://goo.gl/Ytb5SZ [ 한국 뉴스 채널 와이티엔 / Korea News Channel YTN ]

China's foreign investment soar - economy

China's foreign investments have hit a new record. ... euronews, the most watched news channel in Europe Subscribe for your daily dose of international news, curated and explained:http://eurone.ws/10ZCK4a Euronews is available in 13 other languages: http://eurone.ws/17moBCU http://www.euronews.com/2013/09/09/china-s-foreign-investment-soar China's foreign investments have hit a new record. Last year the country jumped into the top three of the world's investors for the first time. It was third behind Japan in the second spot and the number one - the US. Leading the charge are private companies, with the sovereign wealth fund the China Investment Corporation not far behind, using part of the government's huge foreign exchange reserves. It recently acquired a 10 percent stake in London's Heathrow Airport for 450 million pounds (534 million euros) Beijing has encouraged Chinese companies to "go international" with the result that foreign investment have risen from the equivalent of 52 billion euros in 2010 to 66.5 billion last year. Speaking at the China International Fair for Investment and Trade, Wang Yanguo, the deputy head of the country's International Chamber of Commerce for the Private Sector said: "Chinese investors' outbound investment used to focus on traditional industries, but now they've shifted their focus to both traditional and newly emerged industries. Such development momentum is very strong especially in the advanced manufacturing sector and high-tech industries." The Ministry of Commerce said overseas investment is set to grow 15 percent this year through deals like the $4.7 billion (3.5 billion euro) takeover of America's Smithfield Foods - the world's biggest pork producer. That will be the largest ever Chinese acquisition of a US company. It was just approval by the US Committee on Foreign Investment. The Ministry's Department of Outward Investment and Economic Cooperation said just over 79 percent of Chinese investors have made profits or not lost money on their foreign purchases. A report compiled jointly by the Ministry of Commerce, the National Bureau of Statistics and the State Administration of Foreign Exchange revealed the top destination for overseas Chinese investment last year was Hong Kong. The US rose to second place with $4.05 billion (3.05 billion euros)invested, surging 123.5 percent from 2011. At end of of 2012, Chinese companies employed 1.49 million staff overseas, about half foreign citizens, the report added.
