 The report says that China refuses to open its door to German enterprises: a similar argument is purely fried rice.


Sino-German trade cooperation, mutual investment and technology transfer between enterprises are the result of voluntary trading between market participants, which is essentially a reciprocal and mutually beneficial relationship. It is hoped that the relevant institutions will take a positive and objective view of Sino-German economic, trade and investment cooperation and not mislead or damage the good atmosphere that has been formed in the cooperation between the two sides.

At the regular press conference of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on January 11, a reporter asked: It was reported that on January 10, the German Federation of Industries (BDI) issued a report that German enterprises needed the Chinese market, but China had refused to open up the market, called on the European Union to adopt a tough policy towards China, urged enterprises to reduce their dependence on the Chinese market, and said that Chinas unfair practices of price dumping and technology transfer were becoming more and more foreign-oriented. The community is worried. What is Chinas comment on this?

Lu Kang said, frankly speaking, the similar argument is purely a fry. But every time we answer these questions, it gives us an opportunity to show the latest achievements of Chinas reform and opening up.

Lu Kang said that before answering your questions, I would like to quote some latest figures. As I have mentioned here, the Business Environment Report 2019 released recently by the World Bank shows that Chinas business environment has risen by 32 places from 2017, ranking 46th in the world. Specifically in Germany, according to incomplete statistics from China, from January to November 2018, German enterprisesinvestment in China increased 86% compared with the same period in 2017.

For example, German Basf is actively promoting the construction of fine chemical integration base in Zhanjiang, Guangdong Province. This is the first case of a wholly foreign-owned enterprise in Chinas heavy chemical industry. The total investment is expected to reach 10 billion US dollars. If you remember, I just introduced the construction of Tesla Shanghai factory yesterday. Lu Kang pointed out that capital is voted by feet. If, as some reports have said, Chinas market is not open enough, full of barriers and challenges, how can it attract so many foreign enterprises, including German enterprises, to invest in China? Lu Guang stressed that the progress made in market opening in China in the past 40 years of reform and opening up is obvious to all. China will continue to deepen reform, expand opening up and continue to relax restrictions on foreign investment access. Sino-German trade cooperation, mutual investment of enterprises and technology transfer are the results of voluntary transactions of market participants, which is essentially a reciprocal and mutually beneficial relationship. It is hoped that the relevant institutions will take a positive and objective view of Sino-German economic, trade and investment cooperation and not mislead or damage the good atmosphere that has been formed in the cooperation between the two sides.
