BEIJING -- Outbound Chinese investment rose to a new high in the April-June quarter, a gauge by a private equity fund showed Tuesday, as the economy weakens and companies seek opportunities abroad.
The A Capital Dragon Index hit 2,125 points in the second quarter of this year as overseas investments jumped 67 percent from the same period the year before, A Capital said in a release.
The second-quarter increase surpassed the previous high of 2,069 points hit at the end of 2010, A Capital said.
