Discussing on The Need of Examining the Effect of FDI on Western China

Abstract

Western China, where the over-all economic performance is the most lagged-behind in the country, exhibits significant differences in status of FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) and factors attracting FDI compared with its Eastern counterparty. The positive effects of FDI on economy has been proven in the East during decades of rapid development, while the interaction of FDI with local economy in the West has not been sufficiently studied.
