POWERCHINA also has strived to intensify its "going global" strategy, reaping benefits in its overseas market expansion efforts. It has formed a strong and relatively complete system for international trade, with defined target markets. By the end of 2017, POWERCHINA had set up 322 overseas offices in 109 countries, with the contract value of projects under construction exceeding $100 billion. The company has highlighted a diversified market pattern, focusing on Asia and Africa, while expanding to the Americas, Oceania, and East Europe. Under the "new normal" of the world economy, POWERCHINA has made innovations in its business model and enhanced the number of its mergers and acquisitions to boost the transformation of its overseas businesses.

Proficient in new business models and operation strategies such as EPC, FEPC, BOT, BT, BOT+BT, and PPP, POWERCHINA is capable of managing large and complicated projects, offering integrated one-stop services in hydro, thermal, wind power, and infrastructure projects to create more project value, bringing more rewards to project owners.
