Foreign firms still have new opportunities in China

Wednesday, January 4, 2023


This is the first update to the list since 2020. The sectors listed will benefit from incentives such as tax breaks and other preferential access to land. The 'negative list' of sectors closed to foreign investment was shortened in early 2022.


  • The new list will broaden opportunities in high-tech manufacturing, services, health and elderly care particularly.
  • Restrictions on exports related to potential projects, especially dual-use technologies, could cause new disruption for foreign investors.
  • Poorer, inland regions far from China's prosperous coast will benefit from particular incentives.
