Innovated in China: New frontier for global R&D 

For much of the past 30 years, manufacturing investment has been the driving force behind the foreign direct investment landscape in China, and China has developed a global reputation as the factory of the world. However, the focus of China’s government, domestic companies, and global corporations alike, is now clearly shifting toward research and development (R&D).


This issue of China 360 examines the new R&D landscape in China, including some emerging R&D hot spots and available incentives. The article also explains some of the advantages and challenges of setting up R&D centers in China, as well as the current and historical trends that support growth of China-based R&D activities.
