China’s BRI and industrial parks in Southeast Asia - Investigating patterns of FDI and their potential impacts through a novel database

4:00pm - 5:30pm

Research of China’s Belt and Road Initiative has not yet provided a systematic analysis of how much of its investments have been channelled through industrial parks, mostly because of the lack of data. This talk is about a research project that tries to address this gap by building a novel dataset of industrial parks in Southeast Asia. The dataset was merged with a project-level FDI database to examine how much of post-BRI Chinese investments are connected to old and new industrial parks.
