The Chinese Investors in Australia Survey is the first comprehensive poll of the experiences and views of Chinese investors in Australia. The survey provides insights into the perceptions of the Australian investment climate by Chinese investors and the key challenges they feel they face in Australia.

Key insights

  • The search for profitable investments was the primary motivator for Chinese investors.
  • Chinese investors share many common aspiration and views about investing in Australia but recognise they have to do better with local integration activities.
  • Chinese investors are aware of the need to better communicate with their local staff and unions as well as with local media and social organisations.
  • The perceived lack of information about the Australian business environment is of concern since it mirrors a similar view in Australia that too little is known about the Chinese market.
