New China Business Brief Podcast | Duncan Clark: Has China Become 'Uninvestable?'
Over February and March of this year, early-stage investment by venture capitalists in China declined by as much as 90% compared to the previous year. Meanwhile, foreign investors pulled out £23 billion worth of Chinese bonds, representing the largest outflow since the beginning of China's bond market. Such numbers have led some commentators to suggest that China has become 'uninvestable.'
Duncan Clark, a vice-chair at the China-Britain Business Council and chairman of BDA China, speaks to Joe Cash on why he does not buy into the idea that China has become off-limits to foreign investors as a result of recent political and Covid-induced turmoil in the country and explains how foreign investors' attitudes towards China have changed over the past 30 years.
