FDI Center releases study on foreign direct investment to China

German investment to China grew by 139 percent in 2018 and Germany is the largest source of investment from Europe to China. In addition to manufacturing plants, German companies are increasingly setting up new research and development centers in China to develop products for the Chinese market. These are just some of the findings contained in a new study on German investment to China published by FDI Center together with the China Investment Promotion Agency (CIPA) of the Ministry of Commerce. Entitled “German investment in China: changing opportunities and trends”, the report highlights key trends in German foreign direct investment to China and looks at how economic changes in China are impacting German investors. There is growing competition for German investment among Chinese provinces, cities, special economic zones and industrial parks and the study also provides practical recommendations for Chinese locations seeking to attract German investors.

The study was officially released by FDI Center’s managing director Andreas Dressler at the Hannover Messe on April 1, 2019. The report can be downloaded in English or Chinese in the following links:
