Foreign investment sees growth momentum

By Zhong Nan and Ren Xiaojin | China Daily | Updated: 2018-03-16 09:10

Capital inflow into high-tech sector rises 27.9% in first two months of this year

Foreign direct investment into the Chinese mainland from Singapore, South Korea and the United States jumped 62.9 percent, 171.9 percent and 56.8 percent year-on-year respectively in the first two months of 2018, the Ministry of Commerce said on Thursday.

FDI into the Chinese mainland rose 0.5 percent year-on-year to reach 139.4 billion yuan ($22.1 billion) from January to February, while the number of newly-established foreign companies soared to 8,848, leaping 129.2 percent on a year-on-year basis.

Capital inflow from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations and economies related to the Belt and Road Initiative into the Chinese mainland also surged 76.9 percent and 75.7 percent respectively from the same period last year.

"The sharp contrast between the growth rates in the number of new foreign companies and FDI is caused by the country's ongoing industry upgrading and new policies to attract foreign business to deploy their money into the country's high-tech and service-related sectors," said Zhou Mi, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Economic Cooperation.

He said the figures show that the amount of FDI in single projects decreased, as the focus of foreign investment has already changed in the country.

Under the government plan, the general manufacturing sector will be completely opened up, and access to sectors such as telecommunications, medical services, education, elderly care and new-energy vehicles will be expanded this year.

China will also phase in an opening-up of bank card clearing and other markets; lift restrictions on the scope of operations of foreign-invested insurance companies, and ease or lift restrictions on the share of foreign-owned equity in companies in sectors including banking, securities, fund management and futures.

Foreign capital inflow in the high-tech manufacturing sector rose 27.9 percent year-on-year, accounting for almost a fifth of the total FDI in the first two months, while a total of 12.7 billion yuan was attracted by the high-tech service industry, official data show.

As FDI into China reached $136.3 billion, breaking a historical high in 2017, Huang Maoxing, a deputy to the 13th National People's Congress and an economics professor at Fujian Normal University, said foreign companies still see China as a priority investment destination because of its enormous consumption power supported by the country's population size.

"China has always been conducting favorable policies and it will further enhance its appeal to foreign investors, thereby combating the decline in advantages China used to have and the fierce competition for foreign investment from other countries," he said.

Eager to diversify the country's development capabilities, the Ministry of Commerce pledged to further facilitate foreign investment, including granting pre-establishment national treatment to foreign companies and implementing the negative list management system in 2018.

【Translation】

今年前两个月,流入高科技行业的资金增加了27.9%。

商务部星期四表示,新加坡、韩国和美国对中国内地的直接投资同比增长62.9%、171.9%和2018,同比增长56.8%。

从一月到二月,中国内地外商直接投资同比增长0.5%,达到1394亿元人民币(221亿美元),而新设立的外国公司数量则猛增至8848家,同比增长129.2%。

资本流入东南亚联盟和中国一带一路相关经济体进入中国大陆也分别比去年同期增加了76.9%和75.7%。

“新的外资企业数量和外商直接投资额的增长率之间的鲜明对比源自于该国正在进行的产业升级和新政策导致吸引外国企业来投资中国的高科技和服务相关的行业,”周觅这么说道。(中国国际贸易经济合作研究院研究员)

他说,数字显示,外商投资的重点已经发生变化,单个项目的外国直接投资减少。

根据政府计划,一般制造业将全面开放,今年将重点发展电信、医疗服务、教育、老年护理和新能源汽车等行业。

中国也将逐步在银行卡结算等市场开放;取消对外资保险公司业务范围的限制,并减轻或取消对外资在行业包括银行、证券公司、基金管理公司和期货管理公司的股权比例的限制。

官方数据显示,高技术制造业的外国资本流入同比增长27.9%,排前两个月外国直接投资总额的第五,而高技术服务业吸引了127亿元人民币。

中国直接投资达到1363亿美元,打破了2017年的历史最高纪录。黄茂星,第十三届全国人民代表大会代表,福建师范大学经济学教授,说外国公司仍然看到中国作为优先投资目的地是因为其巨大的国家的人口规模产生的巨大消费能力。

“中国一直实施优惠政策,这将进一步提高其吸引外国投资者,从而减少中国在和来自其他国家的外国投资的激烈竞争中已有优势的下降,”他说。

为促进国家多样化发展,商务部承诺进一步促进外国投资,包括在2018年里给予外国公司国民待遇和实施负清单管理制度。

【Tips】

FDI=Foreign Direct Investment,国际直接投资。是以控制企业经营管理权为核心,以获取利润为目的的投资活动。
