Germany and China both benefit considerably from
their bilateral investment and trade relations.
It is in the
interests of both countries to promote reciprocal invest-
ments and to support investors fromtheir respective
countries in the best possible way. Therefore China also
has a responsibility to iron out concerns about Chinese
FDI. In this respect, on the one hand more openness and
greater transparency fromthe Chinese side in relation
to state participation in FDI would be desirable.
On the other hand, China should finally ensure that the pre-
requisites from which Chinese businesses in Germany
profit, i. E. Equal access to the market, a transparent
investment promotion and a non-discriminatory invest-
ment environment, also apply to German and other for-
eign businesses in China.
