The approval process for FDI in China

The US Chamber of Commerce has produced an excellent and comprehensive report on the approval process (actually, many processes) for foreign direct investment in China. It includes both details and big-picture perspective. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this kind of information all brought together in a single report before, at least at this level of detail. It should be on the reading list of all courses about doing business in China.

Don, thanks for these kind comments about the report. Our goal in preparing it for the Chamber was to help ensure that ongoing discussions between China and its trading partners, including in the context of BIT negotiations, are based upon accurate information regarding China's current investment approval policies and processes. We also hoped to stimulate discussion about ways China could further reduce investment barriers and promote its own economic development and rebalancing objectives. I would welcome any questions or comments people may have about the report's contents or conclusions.
