Chinese Responsible Investment Overseas Newsletter Issue 9 - Impacts of COVID-19 outbreak on overseas workers

To provide more up-to-date information for practitioners and researchers in this field, we slightly upgrade the contents with lead story and practical resources in the past quarter, and guest blogs that present cutting edge issues and in-depth analysis of how to promote sustainable development and responsible business through China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) from leading experts & advanced organizations.

This issue focuses on the impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak on China’s foreign trade and investment, as well as related workers and communities. We thank Alvin Camba, Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Sociology at Johns Hopkins University, for contributing a guest blog for this issue. Alvin shares the findings based on his field research on the online gambling companies in the Philippines invested and operated by Chinese and how does the sector adversely impact on Chinese migrant workers’ rights and the Filipino’s daily life in direct and indirect ways.
