BEIJING - The Commerce Ministry said Friday that the rapid increase in outbound investment was normal, dismissing concerns that such gains would intensify capital outflows.

Concerns have been raised that increased foreign exchange demand along with surges in outbound investment added pressure to foreign exchange reserves and international payments. "We are studying whether this will pose any risk and if we need to take targeted measures," spokesperson Shen Danyang said at a news briefing.

China's outbound investment would exceed foreign direct investment in the country this year, Shen said.
