Abstract:
Foreign direct investment (FDI) plays a major role in local, regional, and global economic development, and China is not an exception. FDI has facilitated the rise of China as a major economic power. Given this crucial role of FDI in the Chinese economy, this paper examines perceived impacts of FDI on the Chinese economy based on a survey of Chinese college students. The study examines perceived value of FDI into China, what factors are likely to promote FDI into China, and what potential risks are involved in FDI into China. Gender differences are also examined. The results show positive impacts of FDI on the Chinese economy. A business-friendly environment is the most important factor in terms of promoting FDI into China. Key risk factors include higher employee compensation, better workplace environments of foreign firms relative to local firms, and more favorable policies for foreign companies relative to local firms. The results suggest that FDI is a key element of economic growth and thus that the Chinese government should carefully consider the FDI environment to attract more FDI while minimizing economic and social risks.
