Abstract

[The implementation of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and the economic transformation of China are bringing a wave of Chinese investment into countries around the world. China has already transformed from being a capital-importing country to also the second-largest capital-exporting country in the world. A large proportion of its investment flows to developing countries, especially countries in the Belt and Road (B&R) region where investors are likely to face higher political risks. Protection for Chinese investors against these risks is therefore essential as China’s investments increase. China has not yet established a comprehensive legal framework covering the political risks of overseas investment. In addition, the legal protection provided by Bilateral Investment Treaties against political risk is insufficient. It is time to reconstruct China’s overseas investment insurance system and speed up the signing and revision of BITs with other countries, especially with countries in the B&R region.]
