China Policy and Asia Society Australia join forces to assess the outlook for PRC inbound and outbound investment

With global tension rising and little upside in the PRC domestic economy, our latest brief in the China Executive Briefing series ‘global capital and PRC self-reliance’ reveals that inbound and outbound investment flows to and from the PRC remain surprisingly strong. Incentives attempt to guide international services and high-tech manufacturing firms to invest in China’s less-developed hinterland, and special foreign trade zones are easing access to ever more sectors, while the new regional trade agreement, RCEP, is reducing tariffs, streamlining border measures and stimulating cross-border investment.
