The hottest foreign capital withdraws from China's

  • Detail

Foreign capital withdrawal from China? New factories in the manufacturing industry say no strongly

from "world factory" to "world market", China's huge market demand, like a "magnet", attracts many foreign capital. From the "reform dividend" to the "new normal" of China's economy, foreign capital has come and gone, and the market has different opinions. Under the call of China's "promoting transformation", the "excellent foreign investment" seeks the intelligent manufacturing transformation of "quantity and quality"

foreign capital leaving China? Low end manufacturing in the industrial chain is shifting

since the new century, China has been known as the "factory of the world". Its huge labor force, cheap land resources and relatively mature infrastructure have attracted a lot of capital from all over the world. However, with the gradual weakening of the above advantages, the flow of foreign capital has become a new hot topic. Philips Lighting closed its factory in Shenzhen, Seagate, the world's largest hard disk manufacturer, withdrew from Suzhou, and Ge lighting left the site with "ending all direct business activities in Asia and Latin America"... Since last year, some foreign capital withdrawal events have occurred, coupled with the changes in the global investment and trade environment, there is public opinion that there has been a "wave of foreign capital withdrawal" in China

first, from a macro perspective, compare the operating data of foreign-funded industrial enterprises (data as of November 2016): in November 2013, the total number of foreign-funded (including Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan) industrial enterprises in China was 57200, with a sales revenue of 21.80 trillion yuan, of which 6.47 trillion yuan came from exports. This year is also the year with the largest number of foreign entrepreneurs

by November 2016, only 51800 foreign entrepreneurs remained, a decrease of 9.4% over 2013; The sales revenue was 22.76 trillion, and the export scale fell to 5.44 trillion, a full decrease of 15.9% compared with 2013. The most troublesome thing is that the "accounts receivable" of foreign-funded enterprises (confiscated after selling the goods) continue to rise. In November 2013, the accounts receivable of foreign-funded enterprises was 3.33 trillion, with a ratio of 15.3% to the total sales revenue. By November 2016, the amount of accounts receivable increased to 4.05 trillion, with a ratio of 17.8% to the total sales revenue, which is the highest value after China's accession to the WTO. God knows how much of these accounts receivable can finally be recovered...

the withdrawal of foreign capital has aroused public concern

Shanghai Foreign Studies University conducted experiments within 24 hours. Ma Yao, a special researcher of the school of international relations and public affairs, analyzed the frequently cited "evacuation Representatives" of Philips Lighting and Seagate. He pointed out that the reason why Philips closed the factory was mainly due to its own strategic transformation. It constantly tried to increase the research and development and investment of medical equipment, and it did consider the compression of production capacity in the traditional lighting industry. On the other hand, the rise of Chinese local lighting brands has also had a certain impact on Philips Lighting. This kind of action is basically an action of stopping losses and actively seeking strategic direction

the closure of Seagate group's Suzhou plant is an enterprise's own business adjustment under the background of the great industrial change. The products of Seagate group's factories in China are not new solid state drives that are the mainstream of the market, but traditional hard drives driven by magnetic heads that are already declining. This will inevitably lead to a decrease in orders, a decrease in market share and an increase in losses

he believed that the withdrawal of these two enterprises was caused by the company itself and had nothing to do with confidence in China's economy. As put forward in made in China 2025, made in China should transform to innovation, intelligence, green and high-end, and find its own new advantages. At present, robots, artificial intelligence, virtual reality and other high-end industries are developing rapidly in China, which is bound to attract foreign capital to adjust the layout in the Chinese market, withdraw from the low-end, turn to the high-end, and speed up the replacement of old and new kinetic energy

the new expansion and production of new manufacturing plants are on fire

Mitsubishi Electric

according to the Japanese economy in February, Mitsubishi Electric plans to build a new plant in Changshu, Jiangsu Province, to double the production capacity of motors and numerical control (NC) devices used in machine tools. The new plant covers an area of about 33000 square meters, which is similar to the scale of the existing plant. The estimated investment is about 2billion yen, and we will strive to put it into production in 2017. Mitsubishi Electric is providing IOT services to factories, etc. by using this service, we can connect the equipment in the factory and manage the operation of the equipment

: the above is only a microcosm of the new expansion and operation of foreign manufacturing enterprises in China in the first half of 2017. At present, the major developed countries in the world have shifted the focus of their development strategies to manufacturing, especially the pace of intelligent manufacturing has gradually accelerated, and China has become one of the main battlefields of competition among countries. "Made in China 2025", "Internet +", industrial IOT and other policy strategies have brought a series of market opportunities and growth points. The intelligent and digital development strategies of industrial giants are also integrated with the Chinese market. As the door of China's opening-up becomes wider and stronger, the so-called "withdrawal of foreign capital and bad mouthing of China's economy" will be defeated
