Why invest in China?

 
China has a developing economy and foreign investment is very important for a country that wants to establish itself as one of the leading global markets. The current economic growth rate of the country is impressive and China will become an extremely important and even reference market in the years to come. Its potential relies not only on its workforce but also on its extensive transportation network, its proximity to other Asian markets and to Hong Kong, an important economic centre and most importantly, on its own large internal market.
 
The most attractive investment sectors include manufacturing, real estate, business services, retail trade, ICT and software, agriculture, forestry and others. The United States remains one of the most important export partners but China is an important supplies of various goods to the entire world. Foreign direct investment in China in the last several years has been dynamic and while some business sectors remain top investment areas, others are targeted for better development. Key sectors which are being targeted for receiving more foreign direct investments include the energy and healthcare sector and also infrastructure (including urbanization). 

Open a company in China

A foreign investor who wants to set up a company in China needs a few details before registering his company – he may be interested in what type of company suits best to his business, the procedure for incorporation, the documents required by the Chinese authorities etc. Our law firm in China can offer all these details and help the foreign citizen register his company without traveling to China. For accounting services, rules for hiring employees, virtual office and other additional services, the foreign entrepreneur may contact our Chinese lawyers.
