The R&D centers established by the foreign-funded enterprises in China were 47, 750, 1,400 and 1,500 respectively in 2000, 2005, 2010 and 2011.

The foreign-funded enterprises in China have rapidly introduced the industry links with high technology contents such as R&D into China.

The foreign-funded enterprises in China will go deep into the basic-level markets so as to grasp the huge opportunity brought by the broadening of the domestic demands in China.

In 2011, the foreign-funded enterprises had 63 M&A activities in China, with total amount of USD 35.4 billion, up 40% year on year, which were mainly in the consumer products and pharmaceutical fields. The foreign-funded enterprises in China obtain the opportunity for mutual growth by means of M&A and cooperation with the local enterprises.

Perspective in 2012: Uncertainty still exists. Are the foreign-funded enterprises ready?

In 2012, China still faces some uncertain factors, including financial crisis and public debts, energy demand and nuclear threat, social security system from the international aspect; and change of government, inflation, state-owned enterprise reform, social security, gap between the wealthy and the poor, and environmental protection from the domestic perspective.
