From the Paper:

"Over the past several years, China has emerged as one of the largest and fastest growing economies in the world and has become a major destination for foreign direct investment (FDI) (Bilston, 2004). Its population of 1.3 billion represents a huge market with endless potential and entry to the World Trade Organization (WTO) has guaranteed a place in the global financial world. As a result, the Chinese economy is undergoing a major transformation. By addressing many of the historical challenges of entry with deregulation, privatization and economic liberalization, China is turning challenges into opportunities for foreign investment.

As leaders see the value of globalization, China has been actively seeking to attract foreign direct investment (FDI) and technology to promote its modernization efforts and accelerate its export trade capabilities since it opened it doors to foreign countries in 1978 (Xiamen, 2000). The total amount of incoming FDI increased from almost zero in that year to a high of about $110 billion in 1993 and $320 billion in 1999. As a result, China has become the world's third largest recipient of FDI, and the largest recipient among emerging countries."
