Our view : Partnering with SOEs – a new path for growth?

Partnering with SOEs – a new path for growth?

China’s ongoing state-owned enterprise (SOE) reform seems to have entered a new phase, with a push to deepen reform in 2017. Further, Beijing has issued explicit encouragement for private enterprises to participate, giving rise to potential opportunities for multinationals to form joint ventures with SOEs. Despite possible challenges in partnering with SOEs, feasible JV arrangements can still be realized.
