In the present paper, we examine the larger context of China’s “going out” approach and its policy towards CEE16. We analyze also the distribution, structure and trends of the Chinese ODI in five CEE countries, correlated with its investment projects, motivations and constraints. In the final part of the paper we bring to the forefront Romania as a destination for Chinese ODI, providing an analysis of the Chinese investment evolution, their specific features, weaknesses, accomplishments and prospects of further development. The structure of our research is determined by its four main objectives: to generate an overview of the Chinese ODI, to underscore the new cooperation framework between China and CEE-16, to analyze the Chinese ODI in CEE-5 and appraise the untapped potential of its relationship with Romania. Consequently, the paper is structured in four main sections, preceded by an introduction and concluding with a review of the main results.
