Abstract: In an attempt to comply with China?s joining into WTO in 2001, the Chinese Government published a new Guiding Catalogue for Foreign Investment Projects to further liberalize its FDI regime. This paper studies the impacts of this policy on FDI activities in Chinese manufacturing industry using dataset of the Chinese manufacturing industries over the period of 1998-2007. By adopting a Difference-in- Difference approach, this study presents evidence suggesting that this policy significantly raised the openness to FDI of the encouraged sectors in the manufacturing industry. It is found that the promotion policy has a positive and statistically significant impact on the output share of Foreign-Invested Enterprises (FIEs) and employment share of FIEs. Thus the new catalogue significantly increases Chinese?s openness to foreign investment and improves the FDI intensity.
