Abstract:

As the Asian community with the largest population in Spain, Chinese immigrants are actively involved in the national economy for decades and have a great future economic potential, as one of its most outstanding features is the entrepreneurship of its diverse members increasingly most economic sectors as time passes and increases the volume of its population. According to previous studies, in different communities of the Chinese diaspora and their economic activities, usually they appear manifestations of transnationalism: flows of capital, labor, information, constantly crossing borders of nation-states to scale both intra- -regional as inter-regional, and this phenomenon not only helps the growth of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in China in Spain but also to the economic wealth of the Spanish State. Particularly in the last two years, under the context of the Belt and Road Initiative (B & R), which is a new strategy of foreign trade of China planned by 2013 in order to promote economic exchanges between China, Central Asia and the continent European, transnational business of Chinese entrepreneurs in Spain could have access to new development opportunities.

Therefore, despite the work already done, you need to investigate transnational business and the recent evolution of Chinese entrepreneurs in Spain to upgrade its characteristics and determine the present and future impact of the Belt and Road Initiative on economy Chinese in Spain and their participation in the economy of both countries.
