Foreign Direct Investment

Decades of reform and the long process involved with opening China's economy has transformed China's original goal of getting rid of poverty and improving basic living standards into becoming the second largest economy in the world. The history of China’s  development has proved China’s rise is not just a fluke, but an economic miracle and today’s reality. The Chinese people believe that ideology should not be a problem or a barrier to economic development. Since opening its door to the world, Chinese FDI policies have dramatically changed from simple “borrowing”, and “cooperative” into today’s “more selective”, “free economy”, and “go-out” approach. While China is in the process of opening all industrial sectors to comply with WTO rules and is actively encouraging foreign investment, some Chinese “rules” have made foreign investors feel they are receiving “less than advertised” from the stated policy incentives. Additionally they are encountering stronger competition from the rapidly maturing domestic companies.
