China Going Global Investment Index

This report from the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) concludes that by 2017 China will become a net investor. Chinese Outward Direct Investment (ODI) has grown at an average rate of 35% since 2005, and is today ranked 3rd on the global ranking (after the US and Japan).
 
To discover which countries are likely to attract Chinese ODI, the EIU used a robust and quantitative approach where 53 indicators, for example market size and natural resources, were measured.
 
The top ten countries in the China Going Global Investment Index are: 
  1. USA (54.9)
  2. Singapore (48.9)
  3. Hong Kong (45.9)
  4. Japan (43.8)
  5. Australia (43.7)
  6. Canada (43.2)
  7. Switzerland (40.2)
  8. Norway (39.8)
  9. Russia (39.6)
  10. Germany (37.7)
