Summary Australia is renowned for its abundance of natural resources and is one of the largest recipients of Chinese direct investment. State- and privately-owned Chinese firms have invested heavily in the Australian minerals industry to secure a supply for their domestic production. In this book, the authors provide a comprehensive review of how Chinese firms have successfully invested in the Australian mineral industry based on their extensive research and consulting experiences. They provide unique insights into the entry processes used by Chinese investors, factors contributing to their successes, lessons they have learnt, and the challenges they have encountered in managing their investment. Moreover, the book also elaborates on how the political, economic and competitive forces in both countries influence Chinese investments in Australia. It is an informative tool for domestic and international policy makers, business professionals, academic and informed readers with interests on how China's resource requirements are impacting the Australian political and commercial landscape
