Abstract/Summary This report investigates community engagement by key Chinese-invested firms (hereafter Chinese firms) in Australia. It focuses on the community engagement practices (programs, initiatives and activities) and their derived benefits to both communities and Chinese firms. The report also briefly describes the challenges faced by Chinese firms in their community engagement and how communities and Chinese firms can better engage each other to achieve win-win outcomes. Findings show that Chinese firms in Australia have spent substantial time, effort and resources engaging communities. Most of the Chinese firms are aware of the importance of community engagement for the sustainability of their business operations. They are motivated to be good corporate citizens, as well as being driven by the need to manage their stakeholders, meet institutional requirements and behave ethically to enhance their corporate reputation.
