Mining is the main industry receiving Chinese investment followed by real estate and transport infrastructure

New data out on Chinese investment in Australia has revealed that while the mining industry is the dominant destination of funds, investment in real estate and transport infrastructure also accounts for a large proportion of Chinese activity.
