China attracted record-high direct investment volume – 106 billion dollars in 2010, which is a leap of 17.4%, compared to the previous year.
An opposite tendency was observed in 2009, when investments shrunk by 2.3%.
Last year, approximately 20% of all foreign investments were directed to the real estate sector. At the same time, the inflow of investments to poorer and less-developed regions in the country increased significantly.
While, China’s external investments rose even faster. They have increased by 36.3%, totaling 59 billion dollars. The Chinese companies bought ready-made companies abroad, as well as a variety of already launched perspective projects.
