Abstract

Foreign direct investment (FDI) is a key element in international economic globalization and integration. FDI encourages the transfer of technology and knowledge between countries which allows the host economy to promote its products more widely in international markets. FDI is an important factor to consider when studying the effects on an economy of a country. The focus of our research will be specifically on Inward FDI in China. Research will analyze its effects on China’s economy from 2005-2014 and seek to find correlations between Current GDP, FDI Stock, and FDI Inflows. Investigation into the Sectorial breakdown of Inward FDI along with Regional inflows towards Special Economic Zones (SEZ’s) and Free Trade Zones (FTZ’s) will be explored. Employment, Greenfield Investments, Multinational Corporations (MNC’s), and the impact of the China-US bilateral investment treaty (BIT) negotiations will be examined. Graphing and tables of data, to include micro and macro analysis, will be presented to extrapolate the findings.
