Chinese companies buying spree of overseas assets have made world headlines as Beijing encourages entrepreneurs to acquire foreign resources and technologies, market share and management expertise while domestic economic growth slowed.

Slumping global commodity prices since 2014 and the falling value of the euro have made their prey even cheaper.

Here are the 10 biggest overseas acquisitions by Chinese companies by value, with debt excluded, according to figures from international financial data provider Dealogic:

$43 billion: State-owned China National Chemical Corporation (ChemChina) offers to buy Swiss pesticide and seed giant Syngenta (LSE: 0QOP.L - news) on Wednesday
