BEIJING, July 14 (Xinhua) -- Chinese enterprises operating overseas have devoted themselves to shouldering more social responsibility in their overseas investments, according to a report.

The report released Thursday by the Center for China and Globalization (CCG) said many companies have risen to the idea of win-win cooperation with local communities, using company development strategies.

"In the construction of the Nairobi-Mombasa railway, we devoted ourself to environmental and wildlife protection," said Wen Gang, vice president of China Communication Construction. "For example, we built passages tall enough for giraffes to migrate across the railway."

Chinese enterprises have also gradually adopted localization in overseas operations.

Chinese HeSteel Group (HBIS), one of China’s biggest steel companies, regards overseas localization as an important concept.

"We believe that only by pursuing cultural localization, promoting local employment and sharing benefits with local communities, can we be successful in going global," said Yu Yong, chairman of HBIS Group.

The overseas brand image and influence of Chinese enterprises have increased in recent years. Statistics from CCG show that 43 percent of 2,922 companies surveyed regard promoting brand influence as a major drive to go global.

Small and medium-sized private companies also participated in the overseas market, with a total investment volume of 154.9 billion U.S. dollars in 395 cases in 2016, the report said.

  • Harvey Dzodin: Trump’s terrible trade tariff trifecta

    The Trump tariffs are opposed by virtually every US CEO, and by most countries. The tariffs make absolutely no sense, except as throwing a bone to Trump’s blue-collar base. By poking his little fingers in China’s eye, and sloppily doing so at that, the US is inviting retaliation from the countries most hurt by the tariffs, of which China is not even one.
