Abstract

This paper examines how swiftly core characteristics of the global economy are changing and the implications for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) into Australia, especially FDI from China. The paper focuses on how state investment capital is an increasingly important strategic priority for governments, regulators, finance sector participants and other stakeholders. This is of the utmost strategic significance for Australia, given that its stability and economic well-being is increasingly intertwined with Asian jurisdictions, many of whom are active state investment actors. An edited version of this paper will be published in a forthcoming issue of the Seattle University Law Review as part of a special issue featuring the Fifth Annual Symposium of the Adolf A. Berle Jr. Center on Corporations Law & Society (Berle V) held in Sydney, Australia in May 2013.
