In the first six month of 2016, China’s outbound M&A volume surpassed 2015 full year record, and not only volume increase is obvious, the number and size of deals are also rising. In February ChemChina agreed to buy Syngenta AG for $48 billion; Haier, with a $5.58 billion M&A, has General Electric’s appliances business officially under its name on 6 June; Midea engaged in a $5.0 billion bid for German robotics maker Kuka.
