Offshore Capital coming back & Direct Foreign Investments

The China officials have reported that the total FDI (Foreign Direct Investments) in January 2006 was USD 4.55 billion, which is 10.99% up comparing to USD 4.1 billion January 2005.

The Ministry of Commerce reported that during the given period the largest sources of foreign direct investment were Hong Kong, Germany and the British Virgin Islands.

Another evidence of the successful marketing campaign of the British Virgin Islands in China. It is a message that BVI jurisdiction and its IBC are welcomed in the country and there are substantial benefits of using this jurisdiction when entering one of the most perspective world’s markets.

By the way, not every BVI IBC is really the foreign investor in China. These companies, sometimes owned by Chinese and properly structured by Hong Kong or other lawyers, return offshore profits back to the country.
