Rethinking investments in natural resources: China's emerging role in the Mekong region

This scoping study is part of a research project entitled Understanding China as an Actor in the Mekong Region, jointly implemented by the Heinrich Böll Stiftung, WWF and the International Institute for Sustainable Development. The project aims to shed some light on China’s economic role in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia as a basis for constructive dialogue between decision makers and other stakeholders in China and the Mekong countries. The research focus is on Chinese investments in natural resources – in particular in the mining, agribusiness and hydropower sectors – while also touching on issues related to trade and aid.
