Chinese Investment

in Australia


The Chinese Investment in Australia (CHIIA) Database is a public database of Mainland Chinese direct commercial investment in Australia. The CHIIA methodology produces data from transparent sources, using consistent classifications and methods, making it suitable for use in peer-reviewed academic publications.

CHIIA was created, and is maintained by the East Asian Bureau of Economic Research at the Crawford School of Public Policy, The Australian National University.


The East Asian Bureau of Economic Research is a forum for high-quality economic research focussing on issues facing the economies of East Asia. It comprises representatives from Japan, China, South Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia and Australia. The rapid development of the East Asian economies, the growth of intra-regional trade, financial and other economic interaction, and East Asia's new role in the global economy all underline the need for access to a vastly increased range of quality economic analysis on East Asia.
