While China’s biggest corporates are increasingly flexing their global muscle as the country’s economic and geopolitical influence accelerates, Bangkok is the 10th most popular destination for mainland firms expanding overseas.

Bangkok also ranks 3rd in terms of the volume of Chinese corporate leasing activity over the last three years, according to ‘China12: China’s Cities Go Global’, a new report from real estate consulting firm JLL.

The report analyses 12 mainland cities and their transformation into major hubs of innovation and global interaction. It also dives into the country’s emerging wave of influential corporates and the impact that this group of dynamic Chinese companies have beyond their domestic market.

“The China12 are home to a growing group of highly dynamic and ambitious new generation firms that will drive the next wave of globalisation,” says Jeremy Kelly, Director of Global Research, JLL.

 

“We’re already seeing a higher number of domestic brands, both established firms and new start-ups, enter the international market, with key targets in South and Southeast Asia.”

According to real estate consulting firm JLL, Chinese businesses are now expanding their global footprint through targeting emerging markets, acquiring overseas firms and making strategic investments in new technologies.

China’s largest companies are leading the charge overseas and emerging as some of the world’s most innovative brands. In terms of scale, Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent rival Google, Amazon and Facebook while hardware giants like Huawei, ZTE and Lenovo have become some of China’s most internationalised firms.

Amongst the global network of cities, Asian markets such as Singapore, Tokyo, Jakarta, Bangkok, Seoul and Delhi are featured prominently. Leading the pack is Singapore as the top destination for mainland firms expanding overseas.

Not only is it Asia’s most stable and transparent market and a global financial services hub, Singapore also carries strong links to China and is geographically well-placed to act as a gateway into Southeast Asia.

Chinese property might grows in Bangkok

According to a report by The Nation Nexus Property Marketing says the property market in Bangkok has been adjusted to serve foreign investment, while more mid-sized players and new developers tap into the market.

Large-sized developers seek investment opportunities in the property leasing market to manage their cost more effectively and generate long-term revenue.

The market for luxury homes in central Bangkok would continue to grow in the second half of this year, managing director Nalinrat Chareonsuphong forecast.

During the first quarter of 2018, 14,094 condominiums had become available in Bangkok from both large and small developers, Nalinrat said.

In the first quarter, around 20 per cent of condominiums in Bangkok were developed by large Chinese companies without investing as joint ventures with Thai developers. The combined value of these projects was over Bt30 billion, she said.
