"China is such a huge market, and companies in most cases have to have some kind of China's strategy," Timothy Stratford, chairman of the American Chamber of Commerce in China (AmCham China), said here in a recent interview with Xinhua.
The American Chamber of Commerce in China said in a paper this year that market access restrictions still affect more than half of its members, with challenges particularly acute in technology and research and development-intensive sectors, where over 75% of its members report issues.
“The President could issue orders that would make it very difficult for American companies to continue to do business in China, but I think it’s not a legal question of whether he’s going to do that — it’s a political and economic question,” said Timothy Stratford, chairman of the American Chamber of Commerce in China.
China's FDI has grown from $46.88 billion in 2001 to $135 billion last year. According to the 2019 China Business Climate Survey Report by the American Chamber of Commerce in China, the nation continues to be a priority for all sectors in terms of their near-term global investment plans.
