Investment Incentives

Jiangsu Investment Promotion Authorities and Incentives

Every province in China, including Jiangsu, has government run investment promotion authorities that promote trade and foreign investment in the Jiangsu region.  While the Ministry of Commerce of the People’s Republic of China (also known as MOFCOM) has authority for investment in greater China, it can be very helpful to reach out to similar agencies at the local and provincial levels as these organizations possess intimate local market knowledge.  Many regional authorities will also offer additional incentives to foreign companies looking to invest in specific industries.
