Doing Business in China 2017

With respect to trade, U.S. good exports to China in 2015 were $116.2 billion, down 6.1 percent from the previous year. U.S. exports of services to China were an estimated $42.5 billion in 2014 (the latest data available). Despite significant market access barriers for foreign firms, U.S. foreign direct investment in China was $65.8 billion in 2014 (the latest data available), a 9.8 percent increase from 2013. The United States and China continue to negotiate a Bilateral Investment Treaty, which, if implemented, would provide a more level playing field for foreign investment in China. Recently enacted policies and laws, such as China’s Law on Non-Governmental Organizations(NGO) Law have somewhat soured the mood among the U.S. business community in China. The 2016 American Chamber of Commerce in China (AmCham) survey revealed that China remains a top priority, but fewer companies are increasing investment levels in China. Nevertheless, significant market potential exists for foreign companies, particularly those operating in industries where there is opportunity for collaboration and mutual benefit, such as energy efficiency, clean technology, healthcare, and e-commerce.
