Chinese Foreign Direct Investment in Australia

...DRAFT Chinese Foreign Direct Investment in Australia: Policy Issues for the Resource Sector Peter Drysdale Crawford School of Economics and Government The Australian National University and Christopher Findlay School of Economics University of Adelaide Abstract The last nine months has seen Chinese foreign direct investment in the Australian resource sector become an issue of policy interest.

Is the surge of FDI into Australian mining and energy consistent with achieving the traditional gains from foreign investment?
