As a result of the economic reform in china, the Chinese government needs a huge influx of foreign investments to modernize its market. This creates opportunities for foreigners to invest in this country. There are several factors affecting foreign companies' decisions in investing in China. Such factors are characteristics of market, distribution system, government restrictions on foreign trade and foreign investments, competition policy, price controls, and preferential treatment offered by government to foreign investors. Investments in many particular industries are encouraged by the government, especially infrastructure and telecommunication projects, since these industries have not yet been developed enough for the new open market policies. Forms and strategies to enter to Chinese market are discussed in this paper. The most favorite form of foreign investors is Chinese-foreign joint venture. An example of how existing company, Motorola, runs its business in China are also shown in the report.
