More FDI flows into China’s high-tech sectors
Bucking the trend of the global foreign direct investment (FDI) slide, FDI into the Chinese mainland maintained double-digit growth in the first three quarters of this year. Specifically, FDI in high-tech manufacturing and the high-tech service sector rose 48.6 percent and 27.9 percent year-on-year, respectively.
The government policies guide foreign investment into key fields like advanced manufacturing, high-end technology, energy conservation and modern services. Foreign companies are also encouraged to set up R&D centers in China and deeply participate in the country's intelligent manufacturing, as well as the construction of advanced manufacturing industrial clusters.
