After decades of economic reform, China has become a great economic power in the world, thanks to low-cost labors and materials. Now with intensified competition, rising production and labor costs, and excess production capacity, China's economy is facing a strong headwind, posing severe challenges to local and foreign businesses alike. This report, serving as a reference for foreign companies when making investment decisions in China, is the aggregated results of China's investment climate surveyed by TEEMA (Taiwan Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association). Key indicators in the economic and political aspects are addressed and examined, with corresponding strategies to help business owners overcome the difficulties in China's changing business environment.
