The volume of Chinese capital subscribed in registered capital of Czech companies has declined since last year´s Chinese President´s visit by 198mil crowns, down to 5,5bil crowns.
Total number of domestic companies possessed by Chinese owners has decreased by 35, down to 2 101. In the imaginary chart of the largest foreign owners China remains on 22nd position. It has been published as a result of the ownership structure analysis of the Czech business sphere regularly published by the consulting company Bisnode.
´Earlier announced massive investments have not yet been accounted. If the Chinese Eurasia Development Group Limited had not purchased 71,1 percent of the Czech sales company of garden machinery and swimming pools Mountfield, the year-on-year volume of Chinese capital in registered capital of Czech companies would have dropped by significant 630mil crowns´, stated the Bisnode analyst, Petra Štěpánová, adding that the historical maximum of Chinese capital was reached in 2015.
