Chinese overseas investment has undergone a significant increase in the last few years. These investments are not only conducted by the state-owned companies, but also by the private enterprises. Furthermore, the range of overseas investment has become broader than before, covering agriculture, energy, natural resources, transportation, manufacturing, cultural, educational, and other sectors. However, there are some concerns around whether the concept of “business ethics” has been widely implemented by the Chinese business circle. Furthermore, what are the key institutional designs to address this issue? Is there any law or regulation to regulate and enforce this concept? This paper, by studying the relevant regimes, aims to examine the above questions. The first part of this paper will review the development of Chinese overseas investment. Secondly, this paper looks at the legal and institutional framework for the regulation and supervision of overseas investment. Moreover, by a close examination of the current law, regulations and industrial guidelines relating to ethical requirements, conclusions will be drawn.
