Read the Report:


The Atlantic Council, with the support of Sayari, released an in-depth investigative report to help policymakers and business leaders mitigate risks from Chinese economic coercion. This timely report arrives as economic statecraft and offshore business activity becomes more central to the future of China’s economy. While U.S. policymakers are advocating reduced dependence on China, complex global ownership structures and trade networks make it challenging to accurately map China’s global economic footprint.

For the past year, Global China Hub Nonresident Fellow Dr. William Piekos has been engaged in a project aimed at empowering stakeholders to better understand China’s economic influence efforts abroad. With the support of Sayari’s comprehensive data and risk intelligence, Piekos’s report explains how they used public data to uncover private entities linked to the Chinese government, the implications of these findings, and recommendations to policymakers and corporations for future risk mitigation.
