Every region in China, including the Liaoning, has government run investment promotion authorities that promote trade and foreign investment in that 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.
Important Note: Many incentives must be repaid at the provincial and/or city level in the event that the company leaves the region. National incentives are not typically subject to these restrictions.
