During the meeting, special emphasis was placed upon the emerging model of Chinese outbound investment, in which Chinese SOEs partner with local firms for the first few initial projects, thereby reducing their risk in the new market while acquiring the local operational, regulatory, and cultural fluency to succeed later with an entire in-house team. Although this model may not apply as well in developing markets, it has additional attractiveness in markets such as the UK, Europe, and the US. While there is little or no resistance to Chinese firms in the UK or Europe, this method has the additional benefit in the US of demonstrating to the authorities and local population that the Chinese enterprises are responsible, professional, and internationally competitive.
