Chinese Investment in Asia

South Asia contains more than 1.6 billion residents, and the large population not only creates tremendous market demand directly but also supplies abundant cheap labor force. South Asian countries have rich natural resources, which consist of 14 mineral resources such as petroleum, natural gas, coal, copper, iron and so on. Constrained by funds and technology, these resources market is not well developed at present, but has great potentialities. Given the fact that infrastructure construction is delayed, the governments in South Asian countries need to construct a batch of large-scale roads, ports, airports, railways, power facilities and telecommunications. It predicts a broad market in engineering construction and electric power development. In a sum, the huge population, abundant natural resources and enormous size of to-be-built infrastructure constructions arise great opportunity for Chinese and global firms.
