The Scholl Chair in International Business and the Freeman Chair in China Studies at CSIS present a book launch with Professor Michael Enright on Developing China: The Remarkable Impact of Foreign Direct Investment. Professor Enright will present the key themes of his research, followed by a panel discussion. One of the most important features of China’s economic emergence has been the role of foreign investment and foreign companies. The importance goes well beyond the USD 1.6 trillion in foreign direct investment that China has received since it started opening its economy. Using the tools of economic impact analysis, the author estimates that around one-third of China’s GDP in recent years has been generated by the investments, operations, and supply chains of foreign invested companies. In addition, foreign companies have developed industries, created suppliers and distributors, introduced modern technologies, improved business practices, modernized management training, improved sustainability performance, and helped shape China’s legal and regulatory systems. These impacts have helped China become the world’s second largest economy, its leading exporter, and one of its leading destinations for inward investment. The book provides a powerful analysis of China’s policies toward foreign investment that can inform policy makers around the world, while giving foreign companies tools to demonstrate their contributions to host countries and showing the tremendous power of foreign investment to help transform economies.

China was the number one target for foreign direct investment last year... topping the U.S. for the first time in more than a decade. The country′s steady growth was cited as the main reason, along with a general trend toward developing countries. Kwon Soa reports. China became the top destination for foreign direct investment last year,... according to the latest report by the UN Conference on Trade and Development. This is the first time it′s topped the United States since 2003. Foreign businesses invested over 1-hundred-27 billion U.S. dollars into China last year, a 3-billion-dollar rise from the previous year. The U.S., on the other hand, saw investments plunge to 86 billion dollars... from over 2-hundred-30 in 2013. That put the U.S. in third behind China and Hong Kong, followed by Singapore, Brazil and the UK. The U.S. was the only developed country in the top five. The UN conference′s director of investment and enterprise, James Zhan, says China′s performance is attributed to its steady economic growth. He added there have been changes in the investment areas from manufacturing toward the service sector... and from labor-intensive fields to tech-intensive ones. And investors are generally shifting away from developed economies to developing ones, with foreign direct investment in developing economies having doubled since the 2008 global financial crisis. Asia alone has accounted for 15 percent of the inflow last year,... the highest amount ever. Although Korea′s FDI inflow has been among the bottom 7 out of 8 Asian countries for six years, according to a report from last year, the foreign direct investment amount pledged to Korea reached a record high of 19 billion U.S. dollars last year, ...with most investments coming from the EU. And on a report on foreign direct investment potential, Korea ranked fourth out of 177 countries. Kwon Soa, Arirang News.

For more on the U.S.-China FDI Project, visit www.ncuscr.org/fdi. After reaching a record $60 billion in 2016, foreign direct investment (FDI) flows between the United States and China have been squeezed into a diminished position by forces on both sides of the Pacific. In 2017, Chinese FDI in the United States dropped by more than one-third as Beijing re-imposed capital controls and Washington toughened screening of high-technology acquisitions; the value of newly announced transactions dropped by more than 90%. The outlook for 2018 is more uncertain still. President Trump has designated China a strategic competitor, a label not applied since 2000, and Washington is contemplating a disruptive array of more restrictive China policies to respond to national security concerns and the perceived lack of reciprocity, including greatly intensifying the investment screening process. On April 10, the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations and Rhodium Group hosted an event in Washington, D.C., to release two studies that will shape the public debate on these urgent topics: Two-Way Street, the definitive analysis of U.S.-China FDI trends from 1990 through 2017; and New Neighbors, the seminal analysis of local impacts from Chinese FDI across every U.S. congressional district. With 12 months of brand new data and a number of recent policy developments in both countries, the report authors provided a thorough and timely presentation of research on U.S.-China FDI, followed by a panel discussion with American legal and business leaders. This event was part of the U.S.-China FDI Project, a multi-year research initiative that aims to provide greater transparency on FDI flows between the United States and China. Speakers and Panelists: Amy Celico is a principal of Albright Stonebridge Group (ASG), and leads the firm’s China team in Washington, D.C.

China has become the world's largest recipient of foreign direct investment in the first half of 2018, by attracting an estimated inflow of 70 billion US dollars. That's according to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development. Research shows global FDI fell by 41 percent during this period, to an estimated 470 billion dollars worldwide. The decline is mainly due to US parent companies releasing large payments of accumulated foreign earnings by their overseas affiliates in response to tax reforms.

http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/investing-tips/foreign-direct-investment-in-china Foreign Direct Investment in China By www.ProfitableInvestingTips.com Investors are looking outside of China for places to do business and foreign direct investment in China is falling off. According to the online Wall Street Journal China attracted less foreign direct investment in May compared with a year ago, according to new figures, amid concerns among some foreign investors about less-favorable operating conditions in the world's second-largest economy. The issues commonly cited as foreign direct investment in China which decline are those which we have noted previously. China has a less than transparent economy. The rule of law is arbitrary to say the least as the old Communist Party holds on to power. As China's work force ages the price of labor is going up. And the long expected Chinese real estate bubble may still collapse leading to long term economic stagnation similar to what happened with Japan. Meanwhile, other nations are seeing more investment as foreign direct investment in Chile has nearly doubled in early 2014 versus the year before. According to Forbes online Foreign direct investment in Chile rose 82% in January to April versus the same period of 2013, according to the Chilean central bank. How Can You Short China? If you believe that a stock is going down you can short it. How can you short China? You can certainly invest elsewhere but is there a way that you can profit if the Chinese economy tapers off as investment goes elsewhere? You can buy and sell Chinese stocks on American stock exchanges using American Depository Receipts. Level I ADRs are subject to the same rules as US stocks in terms of reporting and transparency requirements. If you believe that one of these stocks may fall substantially in price you might consider buying put options on that stock, wait for the hammer to fall and then cash out. Fundamental Analysis of Business Investment Opportunities How to evaluate a country for investment is to start with reliable sources of information such as the World Bank and by all means visit the country in question. The World Bank is a repository of excellent information regarding investing offshore. Whether you are contemplating foreign direct investment or buying stocks via ADRs, the World Bank has very useful information to help evaluate a country for investment. A useful page of results from the World Bank business project is the ease of doing business index page which ranks nations from 1 to 189 for a composite of factors that make doing business easy or difficult. Ease of doing business ranks economies from 1 to 189, with first place being the best. A high ranking (a low numerical rank) means that the regulatory environment is conducive to business operation. The index averages the country's percentile rankings on 10 topics covered in the World Bank's Doing Business. The ranking on each topic is the simple average of the percentile rankings on its component indicators. The Likely Case Foreign direct investment in China has fallen off this month and may fall off more. But, the Chinese economy is not going to collapse. A more likely scenario is that the government will make changes sufficient to stay in power, increase investment at home and do things to decrease their reliance on exports. Foreign direct investment in China in the future will likely have more to do with selling to the Chinese than making things in China to sell to the world. http://youtu.be/51YzlDqZOaA

한중 투자 FTA후 급증 Investment between South Korea and China has soared since the two countries' free trade agreement went into effect last December. According to the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency on Wednesday, Korea's FDI in China was at two-point-two billion U.S. dollars as of May, a twelve percent increase from the same period last year. The figure decreased after peaking at six-billion dollars in 2004 and then started gaining momentum again in 2012. China's FDI in Korea also increased sharply to seven-hundred million dollars as of May, an 80-percent jump from the same period last year. KOTRA says the increasing investment is a result of more Korean firms expanding into China and more diversified Chinese investment in Korea ranging from real estate to cultural content and food.

http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/investing-tips/foreign-direct-investment Foreign Direct Investment By www.ProfitableInvestingTips.com Follow the money is age old advice for knowing why something is happening. In this case we would like to follow the money that goes into foreign direct investment. Foreign direct investment is done by folks with lots of money and the intention to stay on course and make a profit. If you are looking for offshore investment ideas, take a look at where foreign direct investment goes year after year after year. There have been changes afoot regarding where foreign direct investment is going. A very useful reference in this regard is the just published United Nations study, World Investment Report 2013. We have used 2007 and 2012 as bookend comparison years as 2007 was just before the onset of the worst recession in three quarters of a century and 2012 is the most recent year reported. Of note is that direct foreign investment has fallen in the large majority of nations but there are exceptions that should help guide investors with their fundamental analysis of where to put their money in the years ahead. First take a look at the data and then read about foreign direct investment. Foreign Direct Investment Comparison of 2007 and 2012 In Billions of USD Taken from the United Nations World Investment Report 2013 Nation 2007 2012 European Union 859 323 UK 200 71 France 96 37 Germany 80 67 North America, incl. Mexico363 408 Canada 117 54 USA 216 329 Mexico 31 26 Japan 23 123 China 84 84 China, Hong Kong 62 83 South Korea 9 33 India 25 9 South Africa 6 4 Russian Federation 57 51 Brazil 35 -3 The largest gain in foreign direct investment on our chart is in the USA followed closely by Japan (113 billion to 100 billion). As a percentage increase Japan out performs everyone with an increase of more than 400%. Other significant performers are South Korea with a more than 200% increase in foreign direct investment and Hong Kong with a twenty-five percent increase. It is significant that the BRICS nations which were thought to be ready to move up economically lost as a group. China stayed put at $84 Billion. Russia fell from $57 Billion to $52 Billion and South Africa fell from $6 Billion to $4 Billion. Brazil fell off the charts going from $35 Billion in direct foreign investment to a negative $3 Billion because investors are taking money out of the country! Direct Foreign Investment: What Is It and Why Do It? In general, foreign direct investment includes mergers and acquisitions, the building of new facilities, reinvestment of profits earned overseas and cross border loans within offshore operations. Basically companies invest offshore because they expect to make a profit over the long term. Because of the long timeline needed to research new projects and develop them, this sort of investment is typically well thought out. Reasons to invest offshore aside from expected profits include low taxes, tax holidays of the twenty-five year or longer variety, preferential tariffs, investment loan subsidies, free land or land subsidies, R&D support, proximity to profitable markets and more. Can You Follow the Money and Make a Profit? There are some useful lessons to be learned from reading the results of the World Investment Report 2013. A lot of the hype about Brazil and the rest of the BRICS nations was largely that, just hype. Brazil is attached at the hip to China and when events in China trigger the next big stock market crash Brazil will suffer. Money is going where there is economic, social and political stability, high end technology, democracy instead of dictatorship and nations that are interested in getting foreign investment instead of driving it away. Hong Kong is preferred over China because of the democratic residual from British colonial days. Japan is in an economic resurgence and Korea is largely keeping pace. The USA remains the most economically open economy and thus benefits the most from direct foreign investment during troubled times. When you decide where to put your money look for growing economies and economic sectors, tax advantages to your investment in a given economy and political stability so that the next government does not decide to confiscate your investment. http://youtu.be/pmqXFPWG87s

FII The Indian government has rolled out "aggressive reforms" aimed at unifying the country's market, which is very attractive in the eyes of international investors, even though there are huge challenges such as poor infrastructure and difficulties in policy implementation across different states, the article opined. Referring to the commitment by Foxconn and Midea to invest in India, it said these investments are coming close on the heels of India's decision to implement the Goods and Services Tax (GST), the country's biggest tax reform since its independence in 1947. "The new tax regime is expected to give a boost to the 'Make in India' initiative because it is aimed at unifying various state and central taxes into a single tax system, thus laying the foundation for a common national market and improving India's manufacturing competitiveness," the article said. "In fact, since Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the 'Make in India' initiative in September, 2014, the Indian government has been making aggressive efforts in unifying the country as a whole, with the aim of building it into an attractive manufacturing destination for global businesses," it said.

In 1990 and 2012, respectively, only two foreign investments have been blocked by U.S. presidents, though others have been considered and, often, less explicitly opposed: 1990: President George H. W. Bush voided the sale of MAMCO Manufacturing to a Chinese agency, ordering China National Aero-Technology Import & Export Corporation to divest themselves of Seattle-based MAMCO 2000: NTT Communications' acquisition of Verio 2005: The acquisition of IBM's personal computer and laptop unit by Lenovo was approved by President George W. Bush 2005: The acquisition of Sequoia Voting Systems of Oakland, California, by Smartmatic, a Dutch company contracted by Hugo Chávez's government to replace that country's elections machinery 2005: In June 2005 a CNOOC Group (a major Chinese State-owned oil and gas corporation) subsidiary (CNOOC limited, publicly listed on the New York NYSE and Hong Kong stock exchanges) made an $18.5 billion cash offer for American oil company Unocal Corporation, topping an earlier bid by ChevronTexaco. While this offer was not opposed by the CFIUS and the Bush Administration, it was criticized by several Congressmen and, following a vote in the United States House of Representatives, the bid was referred to President George W. Bush, on the grounds that its implications for national security needed to be reviewed. On July 20, 2005 Unocal Corporation announced that it had accepted a buyout offer from ChevronTexaco for $17.1 billion, which was submitted to Unocal stockholders on August 10. On August 2 CNOOC Limited announced that it had withdrawn its bid, citing political tensions in the United States. 2006: State-owned Dubai Ports World's planned acquisition of P&O, the lessee and operator of many terminals, mostly for container ships, in several ports, including in New York-New Jersey and others in the US. This acquisition was initially approved by the CFIUS and then President G.W. Bush, but was eventually opposed by Congress (Dubai Ports World controversy). 2012: Ralls Corporation, owned by the Chinese Sany Group, was ordered by President Barack Obama to divest itself of four small wind farm projects located too close to a U.S. Navy weapons systems training facility in Boardman, Oregon In February 2006, Richard Perle gave more insight into CFIUS when he related to CBS News his experience on the panel during the Reagan administration, "The committee almost never met, and when it deliberated it was usually at a fairly low bureaucratic level." He also added, "I think it's a bit of a joke if we were serious about scrutinizing foreign ownership and foreign control, particularly since 9/11." Others emphasize the crucial role that foreign direct investment plays in the U.S. economy, and the discouraging effect that heightened scrutiny may cause. Foreign investors in the United States, much like U.S. investors elsewhere, bring expertise and infusions of capital into often-struggling sectors of the U.S. economy. In a February 2006 interview with the New York Times, another former Reagan administration official, Clyde V. Prestowitz Jr., noted that the United States "need[s] a net inflow of capital of $3 billion a day to keep the economy afloat.... Yet all of the body language here is 'go away.'" And, as Secretary Powell once remarked, "money, capital, is a coward; it will go nowhere where it is put in fear." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Committee_on_Foreign_Investment_in_the_United_States

http://www.ProfitableInvestingTips Direct Investment in China By www.ProfitableInvestingTips.com Direct investment in China by foreign sources rose by a third in March of this year. Asia is leading the way out of the worst recession in eighty years and direct investment in China appears to be a major reason. Money follows opportunity and China's economy is the fasting growing of all major economies in the world. Inflation is a concern for China's economy and banks have raised reserve requirement for lenders as a precautionary measure. Although in the USA one may engage in what we have referred to as deficit investing, China has a different situation. According to recent speech by a central bank official China now has $3 Trillion in foreign currency reserves. That is the recent news. Now the question for individual investors is if direct investment in China is a good idea. If so how does one go about investing in China? If you are Wal-Mart you will go ahead with plans to buy more property for stores in what is turning into the world's largest market for groceries. If you are Starbucks you will increase your presence as an increasingly affluent Chinese populace develops a taste for gourmet beverages. Investment in China can most easily take the shape of finding what stocks to invest in that have a presence in China. The Proctor and Gambles and 3Ms of the world have been in China from the beginning of its conversion to a quasi capitalistic economy. Others like Wal-Mart have a strong presence. In the beginning many companies developed relationships and invested in China in order to produce products cheaply to sell back in their home markets. Now China itself is becoming a major market and many factories that used to produce for overseas consumers are producing for domestic consumption. With the Yuan rising in value against other currencies selling in China becomes increasingly profitable. Large scale direct investment in China requires a presence in the country, a facility with the language, and familiarity with the business culture. These things take time, patience, and skill. There are companies that can ease the way with introductions and advice. For the late comer to this scene partnering with a local business may be the best choice as it fast tracks access the China's markets and its labor pool. The problem for many with technical expertise entering China is to retain the keys to high technology while taking advantage of what China has to offer. Too many have set up shop in China only to see their products and their technical secrets copied in a market that does not provide the protections seen in Europe and North America. What makes you a successful investor anywhere can be applied to direct investment in China. The investor will need a clear idea of what he intends to accomplish. If he is investing by way of buying stocks in Wal-Mart, 3M, or Proctor and Gamble he will want to have a clear idea of their game plans. No matter what the route into direct investment in China there appears to be the potential for long term profits as well as risks for the unwary.

China will open further to attract more foreign investment in 2019, according to the Chinese commerce minister on Friday. Amid declining global flows of foreign direct investment (FDI), China in 2018 saw a stable influx of foreign capital. Last year, China put 135 billion U.S. dollars of foreign capital into actual use, an increase of 3 percent compared with 2017. Commerce Minister Zhong Shan said in an exclusive interview with China Central Television that in 2019, the country plans to take more measures to attract more foreign companies to invest. http://www.cctvplus.com/news/20190112/8100441.shtml#!language=1 Welcome to subscribe us on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/NewsContent.CCTVPLUS Twitter: https://twitter.com/CCTV_Plus LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/cctv-news-content Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cctvnewscontent/ Video on Demand: www.cctvplus.com If you are in demand of this video footage, please contact with our business development team via email: [email protected]

With the volume of foreign direct investment into China declining, China's government ministries are discussing whether to relax FDI approval processes. This would facilitate the access of foreign funds to Chinese investments, which would greatly benefit the real estate industry. Using current Real Capital Analytics' data as its start-point, this session debates the effectiveness of these reforms. It poses questions such as whether FDI can play a major role in an integrated public sector stimulus plan and to what extent policy reforms will open up previously inaccessible real estate investment markets to FDI.
