Security concerns over Chinese investment in overseas ports are growing as the country’s companies acquire more stakes in maritime hubs around the world and geopolitical tensions rise.

Chinese companies have increased investment in overseas ports in recent years and now operate major container terminals in countries including Belgium, Israel, Spain, Sri Lanka and the United Arab Emirates. In total, Chinese and Hong Kong-based companies hold stakes in terminal leases or concessions in 95 foreign ports, according to a study by Isaac B. Kardon from the US Naval War College and Wendy Leuter from Indiana University.
