China is one of the leading world’s economies that attract foreign investment from various countries. For the period January to September 2018, China’s FDI amounted to USD 91.77 billion
. Compared to last year’s FDI, China’s FDI increased by 8 percent. This makes the Chinese market highly attractive to foreign investment.
There are multiple factors that attract investors to this lucrative market.
Back in 2000, China overtook the USA as the leading recipient of foreign capital. Economic conditions are getting better around the world. This has contributed to large amount of investable capital. Part of this capital is used as FDI. Investors are looking for emerging economies that are testing out new products and services.
India and China often contest for the same FDI, but China takes lead due to its mature infrastructure, technological development and skilled human resources. Better roads, ports and airports have made China accessible to the world.
The country is continuously testing new technologies to reduce operational cost and its human resource is specializing in various business aspects. Maturity of these elements has considerably reduced the transaction cost of a Chinese company. Foreign companies can easily set up and reap benefits from these readily-available Chinese resources.
Chinese recently signed a WTO agreement to open their economy to foreign investment in 2001. This means that foreign companies can operate in China without government intervention. The government has eased many of its policies and registration requirement to encourage FDIs.
Trade zones are specifically created to attract foreign investment. China has multiple trade zones in various states and sectors. Trade zone offers easy access to Chinese market, lower tax rate and capital requirements, favourable treatments, ease of entry and exit and subsidies.
