Dr. Terry Olson, Faculty Mentor

Chinas rapid economic growth in recent decades gave the world a surprise. There are a lot of factors that contribute to rapid economic growth in China: government policy, capital growth, raw materials, technology, education and foreign direct investments. In this paper, I will focus on how foreign direct investment has influenced Chinas economic growth. First, I will introduce how FDI has developed in China in recent decades. Secondly, I will discuss the impact of FDI inflow on Chinas economic development. For example, FDI has enhanced Chinas exports, manufactures quality, and has had a positive relationship with GDP. Based on this evidence, I will build an economic model, explain the empirical results and analyze the data. Finally, I will conclude with an assessment of the positive aspects of FDI on Chinas economic growth and give some suggestions for future studies in this area.
