Understanding foreign investment in China

For those focused solely on numbers in offices, the question remains: Is China losing its appeal to multinational corporations and becoming less attractive for investment? Foreign direct investment (FDI) in China decreased year-on-year in the first quarter, but the number of newly established foreign-invested companies grew significantly by 20.7%. Particularly, FDI in high-tech manufacturing took up a larger share of the total. Are global investors leaving the Chinese market in droves or increasing their stakes instead?

Xinhua reporters visited the eastern and southern regions of China, where most foreign-funded firms are located, to understand their perspectives on investing in China and their current and future plans.

Kraft Heinz, a US food giant, recently relocated its Asia headquarters from Singapore to Shanghai due to the growing importance of the Chinese market. “China’s large population and expanding demand for diverse and high-end products make it an attractive market,” said Frederico Freire Jardim, Asia President of Kraft Heinz. The company plans to invest 320 million yuan (45 million US dollars) in China this year, following a previous investment of 670 million yuan over three years.

BASF, a German chemical giant, began production of TPU, a material widely used in sectors like new energy vehicles (NEVs) and biomedicine, at its Verbund site in Zhanjiang city, Guangdong Province, China, several months ago. “China is now the world’s largest chemical market and holds significant strategic importance for BASF,” said Haryono Lim, President of Mega Projects Asia at BASF (China) Company Ltd., Shanghai.

In the fiscal year 2022/23, ZEISS in Greater China generated annual revenue of 13.5 billion yuan, up 22% compared to the previous year. Bosch Group’s sales in China rose by 5.2% last year to 139.1 billion yuan, accounting for about one-fifth of its global total.
