China’s Outbound Investment: Lessons From the Past

    View Author October 2009

    In this white paper, which was submitted and circulated at the World Economic Forum's "Summer Davos" in Dalian, China, Squire Sanders partner Daniel F. Roules compares the current global economic conditions — with expectations for increased overseas investment by PRC-based companies — to the circumstances in the mid-1980s, when Japan-based companies embarked on global expansions.

    He reviews the legal risks that Japan-based companies experienced in the 1980s, and considers how such risks could be better anticipated and managed by China-based companies today.
