China Foreign Direct Investment
Decades of reform and opening policies has transferred China’s economy from single goal of getting rid of poverty and improving basic living standards to becoming today’s second largest economy in the world. The history of China’s economy development has proved China’s arising is not just a chance, but a miracle and today’s reality. Chinese people have believed ideology should not be a problem and barrier in term of economic development.
From beginning of opening its door to the world, Chinese FDI policies have been experienced significantly changes from simple “borrowing”, “cooperative” to today’s “more selective”, “free economy”, and “go-out” approach. As China opens up more industrial sectors to comply with WTO rules, foreign investors are receiving less policy incentives and encountering stronger competition from more mature domestic companies.
