Chinese Invest More in Switzerland

by swisschambei in Business

Switzerland is China’s fifth biggest investment target in Europe, an EY study has found. In 2019, Chinese investors made 12 transactions in Switzerland, investing a total of USD 571 million. Although there were fewer transactions, the total value increased. The consulting company EY has analyzed Chinese investments in Europe and placed Switzerland in joint fifth place with the Netherlands for the number of transactions. Over the past year, Chinese investors made 12 transactions in each of the two countries, compared to 13 in Switzerland in the previous year. There were 182 transactions in Europe last year, most of them in Germany. In terms of the value of the transactions, Switzerland is sixth in Europe, after Chinese investors invested USD 571 million in Swiss companies in 2019. This is an increase in transaction value over the previous year (USD 492 million). In Europe as a whole, Chinese investors invested USD 17.3 billion in 2019, with most of this sum going to companies in Great Britain.
