Chinese operating capital has been flowing fast into the world economy since 2002. This flow is powered by the strongman policy of the Chinese state, based on the centrally set direction of the country's economic development and international role. Based on this, Chinese enterprises are mainly seeking supplies of raw materials and energy, as well as developed technology. Although Africa, SE Asia and Latin America are prioritized and most Chinese operating capital has not flowed into Europe or the Central European countries, the importance of this region in the eyes of Chinese investors has been increasing, thanks to East European policies of encouraging capital imports. Hungary may be especially attractive to Chinese enterprises as a regional distribution centre and a base for R and D.
