2020 was a challenging year for most foreign businesses operating in China, battered by US-China tensions and the global pandemic, according to a new survey released by the American Chamber of Commerce in China (“AmCham China”). Despite significant challenges, though, the outlook among foreign businesses in China remains relatively positive, largely due to the Chinese government’s early and stringent response to the pandemic, an improving investment environment, and anticipation of a more predictable policy environment. 

This is the 23rd consecutive year that AmCham China has surveyed its members on China’s business climate, with the results providing invaluable insight into the longer-term trajectory of China’s corporate environment. The BCS results contain input from around half of the Chamber’s member companies and elaborate on the impact of COVID-19, the progress of regulatory developments, such as intellectual property (IP) protection and cybersecurity, while continuing to assess the impact of US-China trade tensions. 

报告显示,受中美关系紧张和新冠肺炎疫情(以下简称“疫情”)的叠加影响,许多在华外资企业在2020年面临重重挑战。尽管如此,因中国政府在疫情暴发初期采取的严格措施,成功控制了疫情在中国境内的蔓延,外资企业仍乐观看待其在华发展前景。同时,出于对拜登新政府上台后,政策环境将趋于稳定的期待,许多会员企业对2021年的中美关系的走向相对较为乐观。

这是商会连续第23年就中国商业环境对会员企业展开调查,其结果为中国营商环境的长期发展及走势,提供了大量有价值的数据。本次报告回收了商会近半数会员企业的反馈,在持续关注中美经贸摩擦对会员企业影响的同时,详细阐述了疫情对企业运营的影响,以及会员企业对知识产权、网络安全等政策法规方面发展的态度。
