FDI: Entry and ownership rule

In addition to the list of encouraged investments, there were also several types of investments classified under the 'restricted' category. This, in effect, means that they will not receive the benefits that encouraged investments would, but still require a declaration to the relevant authorities.

'Restricted' investments:

  • In countries with no diplomatic relations with the PRC and/or are in a state of crisis;
  • Real estate, hotels and cinemas;
  • Private equity and other investment firms with no specific industrial projects;
  • Outmoded technology;
  • Environmentally inefficient firms.

 

Finally, there are the 'prohibited' investments, which are nominally forbidden completely:

  • Unapproved military technology;
  • Products which are prohibited from export from the PRC;
  • Gaming and pornography;
  • Investments prohibited by international agreements of which China is a party;
  • Anything that may endanger the national security of the PRC.
