This panel will discuss the regulatory framework governing Chinese overseas investment and explore ways to strengthen the integration of environmental and social concerns into business investment projects through government regulation and effective enforcement. The panelists will present the environmental and social performance of Bank or IFC-funded projects in China vis-a-vis other developing countries. Issues related to institutional capacity, political willingness, and public awareness for effective enforcement will also be discussed.
