Guangdong province, China’s manufacturing heartland, has announced new measures to attract foreign investment. On December 1,2017, the Guangdong provincial government issued a report delineating 10 policies to expand the province’s openness to foreign investors and foreign capital. The measures include policies to improve Guangdong’s business environment, promote fair competition between foreign and domestic companies, expand market access, and offer investment incentives.
