China lays out plan to boost foreign investment

The Government of China has outlined measures to boost foreign investment, as part of an effort to build “a new open economic system” in the country. The government is planning to further streamline government administration, improve regulations and reduce business transaction costs to create a favourable business environment for foreign investment.

“In order to implement the plan, the government decided to further push forward its opening-up policy, with efforts to revise the Catalogue for the Guidance of Industries for Foreign Investment, and further open the service, manufacturing and mining sectors,” the State Council said in a statement posted on its website.

In addition, the government encouraged foreign investment to take part in the implementation of China’s innovation-driven development strategy and upgrades in the manufacturing sector, and encouraged foreign talent to start businesses in China, the statement said.

The “Made-in-China 2025” initiative also applies to foreign-invested enterprises, while encouraging them to pour more investment in high-end, intelligent and green manufacturing, the State Council circular said.

Foreign investment is also encouraged to take part in infrastructure construction in energy, transportation, water conservancy, and environmental protection through franchising, it added.

Meanwhile, the government called for creating a market environment of fair competition, which requires related departments to examine the business licenses and qualification applications of foreign-invested enterprises with the same standards and processing timetable as those for domestic-invested enterprises. The intellectual property of foreign-invested enterprises should also be protected, according to the document.

The circular also called for more efforts to attract foreign investment, allowing local governments to form favourable policies to support foreign-invested projects that can facilitate employment, economic development and technology innovation, and reduce the costs for the investment and operation of foreign-invested enterprises.

The central, western and northeast regions will receive support to undertake industrial transformation of foreign investment. In addition, foreign-invested enterprises in supported industries in western regions will enjoy preferential tax policies.

The National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Commerce will coordinate with related departments to strengthen supervision to ensure the implementation of these measures for foreign investment. (RKS)
