Amid COVID-19 Pandemic, RWR Data Shows Depressed Level of Chinese Business Deals Abroad

An analysis conducted using RWR’s proprietary IntelTrak dataset reveals the decline in China’s international business transactions amid the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic since the start of 2020 (compared to the same period of 2019).

While reports from China are that the economy is returning to life after the containment of COVID-19 domestically, the increasing severity of the situation in other parts of the world means it is likely to be some time before the pace of China’s overseas deal-making returns to normal levels.
