The New Foreign Investment Catalogue addresses the policies and priorities set out by the National People’s Congress in the 12th Five-Year Plan (2011-2015) and directs foreign investment capital towards industries and sectors which it deemed, for political or macro-economic reasons, suitable of receiving foreign investment.
The Catalogue will have a significant impact on foreign investment in the country and should be taken into account by all investors interested in China.
