Chinese outbound investment boom falters

The total value of deals in first half of 2017 down 43% on the year

The $16 billion buyout by a consortium of Singapore-based Global Logistic Properties, which operates this logistics center in Suzhou, China, is the largest outbound Chinese deal so far this year.

HONG KONG -- The boom in Chinese outbound investments since 2014 has apparently hit a speed bump amid tighter capital control and President Xi Jinping's call for deleveraging. 

The total value of deals announced in the first half of this year, including those pending, amounts to $73.67 billion, down 43% from a year ago and 20% compared to the second half in 2016, according to financial data provider Dealogic.
