L. Wu and H. Xie
Abstract—Greenfield investment and cross-border M&A are two main FDI entry mode, different FDI entry mode on the economic growth of host country are different in literatures. In particular, some opinions suggest that the impact of cross-border M&A can promote economic growth in the countries that have Sound market and a stable institutional environment, and this relationship is not suitable for those developing countries. This paper examines the data from 11 countries in Asia between 2009 and 2015, the empirical results show that this conclusion cannot be supported either in developed or developing countries, the impact of cross-border M&A on the growth rate of GDP is not significant. This means that the countries in Asian region show a greater diversity in geopolitical, economic development, industry distribution, financial capital, etc. as the most active country in the Asian M&A market and the advocate for the Belt and Road Initiatives, china should further strengthen supervision and make industry guidance for future investment in Asia, so that both the acquirer and the target countries could benefit from it.
