Abstract: Thirty-five international contractors from China were included by the Engineering News Record in the list of the Top 225 International Contractors in 2000. Although Chinese international contractors are increasingly playing a significant role in the global construction market, relatively few studies have been completed on their historical background and foray into the international arena. Apart from seeking to fill this lacuna, this paper also provides an analysis of the these 35 Chinese international contractors to evaluate their achievements using the following performance indicators: International Revenue/Total Revenue, International Business Distribution, Overseas Management Structure, Involvement in Specialized Fields, and Overall Index of Internationalization. The analysis identified the top ten Chinese international contractors who are truly global in outlook. The study also suggests that the traditional multinational enterprise theories may not explain the development of Chinese international construction firms adequately.
