Developing China
The Remarkable Impact of Foreign Direct Investment

In his recent book published this year, Developing China: The Remarkable Impact of Foreign Direct Investment, Professor Michael Enright has undertaken a ground-breaking analysis of the impact of foreign direct investment (FDI) on China’s economy. In tonight’s talk, he will share his analysis of the extraordinary outcomes that were achieved in China through foreign direct investment. Key takeaways will include understanding the full impact of FDI on China’s economy (including the benefits that continue to accrue today), and describing the tools that can accurately demonstrate the contribution that FDI can make at a national and provincial level within host countries.
