The ratio of China in South Korea’s investment portfolio is dropping sharply amid a slowdown of economic growth, rising costs and regulations in China, Yonhap reported. According to the Federation of Korean Industries, China took 39.3% of Korea’s outward direct investments in 2005. The ratio, however, continued falling, marking 10.5% in 2015. That is only half the stake of the United States where 20.8% of Korea’s outward direct investments are headed. Investments in China are decreasing in terms of ratio as well as net sum. Korea invested $2.85 billion in China in 2015, which compares with $5.15 billion in 2013 and $3.16 billion in 2014.
