FDI IN CHINA: An Asian Perspective

About the Publication

China is the largest recipient of foreign direct investment (FDI) among developing countries. This study compares China's FDI performance with a number of other Asian countries and focuses on the policy and institutional factors that lead to a large demand for FDI in China. The policy and institutional factors include import substitution, excess investment demand and features of China's FDI regulatory system. The study shows that there are costs associated with such a high demand for FDI, including overbidding for FDI and the associated loss of Chinese bargaining power, large import demand, and the structure of the FDI at variance with Chinese official policies. This study also briefly discussess the foreign economic policy implications of China's FDI absorption and suggests some future research possibilities. A separate edition for Hong Kong and USA is available from The Chinese University Press.
