The Rise of China and Foreign Direct Investment from Southeast Asia
Krislert Samphantharak
Journal of Current Southeast Asian Affairs , 2011,
Abstract: This paper discusses foreign direct investment from Southeast Asia to China. With the exception of some government-linked companies, most investments from Southeast Asia have been dominated by the region’s overseas Chinese businesses. In addition to cheap labour costs, large domestic market and growing economy, China has provided business opportunities to investors from Southeast Asia thanks to their geographic proximity and ethnic connections, at least during the initial investment period. However, the network effects seem to decline soon after. As the Chinese economy becomes more globalised and more competitive, the success of foreign investment in China will increasingly depend on business competency rather than ethnic relations.
Tobin’s Q and the Location of Foreign Direct Investment in China
Bruce Morley
International Journal of Business and Management , 2009, DOI: 10.5539/ijbm.v3n3p24
Abstract: The aim of this paper is to examine the effects of the Chinese and Hong Kong stock markets on the levels of foreign direct investment into China’s regions, utilising dynamic panel estimation techniques. Using a Tobin’s Q measure, the results indicate that the effect is significant for both the Chinese and Hong Kong stock markets, but negatively signed, suggesting that FDI into China acts as a substitute for domestic investment. In addition we show that the Arellano-Bovver approach to dynamic panels produces an improvement into the modelling of FDI in China.

In study, FDI is said to be creating a favored local group depending on skill intensities, it requires and if the investment is technologically advanced than the host country s state, then this can lead to greater income disparity. China is evidenced with a spectacularly huge FDI inflow in the past decade along with increasing income inequality. This study attempts to analyze, whether FDI inflows in China has any role in increasing inequality over time. Finding of this study is quite clear: foreign funded industries in China are enjoying persistently higher wages than the national averages and the higher the skilled intensive foreign investment is the higher is the wages.

International Journal of Financial Research , 2013, DOI: 10.5430/ijfr.v4n2p148
Abstract: Foreign Direct Investment has contributed significantly to Chinese economic development. Yet the geographic distribution of the FDI is quite uneven. Compared with the inward FDI in the eastern and mid regions of China, the western region has attracted less FDI. FDI is fuelling much of the rapid economic leap of the developed regions of China and the significant inequity grows further. There are many determinant factors to influence the FDI inflows. The essay takes Gansu province as an example, the author concludes that the core constraining factors of Gansu province in FDI attraction are, but not limited to, the economy development and openness degree, natural environment and the impact of industrial cluster, thus, the government of Gansu province should formulate corresponding measures to attract FDI inflows so as to produce optimal results and stimulate the economy growth.

Abstract: With the rapid development of economy, China, as a country which attracts lots of multinational companies investing in and reaping their benefits, now plays an increasing important role as a source of investment all around the world. And more and more Chinese enterprises try their best to expend overseas market. In this paper, based on the perspective of investment motives, I use fixed effect model to study the influence of domestic and the host country institutional factors on outward foreign direct investment (OFDI) with the panel data from 58 Chinese OFDI destinations during 2003-2012. The results show that it’s the domestic institutional factors not the host country’s that play a major role in OFDI, especially property rights in legal field and investment freedom and business freedom in economic field which all have negative effects on ODFI, fiscal freedom and monetary freedom in economic field which all have positive roles.

Paulo Elicha Tembe,Kangning Xu
International Journal of Financial Research , 2012, DOI: 10.5430/ijfr.v3n4p69
Abstract: Attraction of foreign direct investments has been deserving attention for many governments worldwide. Using different literature about Foreign Direct Investment, this paper analyzes the determinants and policies to attract foreign direct investments to developing countries and makes a comparative study between Mozambique and China. The results found, indicate the difference among countries in attracting investments due to their different geographic location, conditions of infrastructure (poor or developed), corruption, taxes as well as the implementation of the policies by the governments. These results also show that successful policies in China should not be copied or implemented by Mozambique. Foreign Direct Investment must only be allowed to operate according to local conditions and must conform to certain performance requirements that will ensure a positive impact on development. Evidence within this paper shows that Africa is different in attracting FDI due to the lack of high return on capital and infrastructure development, and openness to trade.
Does Corruption in a Country Affect the Foreign Direct Investment? A Study of Rising Economic Super Powers China and India  [PDF]
Siva Prasad Ravi
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2015.37017

Many researchers have studied the effect of corruption on Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and majority of them have come to the conclusion that higher levels corruption in a country deter FDI. This paper is a case-based comparative study of the effect of corruption on FDI in China and India. Corruption in India has negatively affected FDI, whereas that is not true in China. This study finds that while corruption does affect FDI inflows into a country, the effect also depends on nature of corruption and not only on size of corruption.

Foreign Direct Investment in China Manufacturing Industry –Transformation from a Low Tech to High Tech Manufacturing  [cached]

International Journal of Business and Management , 2011, DOI: 10.5539/ijbm.v6n7p15
Abstract: Since China opened its economy to foreign investment in 1979, it has become the second largest Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) destination in the world after USA. Over the period 1997 to 2008, the manufacturing sector has dominated China’s FDI inflow, however, when manufacturing activity is bifurcated into low and high technology classes, it becomes evident that China is in a transition stage moving from FDI in traditional low-tech activity to a high-tech manufacturing environment. This paper attempts to summarise and explain the key determinants of FDI inflow across low and high technology manufacturing industry across three geographical regions of China. In the paper we empirically investigate the determinants of FDI high-low tech inflow by market size, labour cost, labour quality, and infrastructure. We also investigate the theoretical foundations for China’s transition from a low tech to a high tech manufacturing environment.
