Xi has turned China from an investment magnet to an investment nightmare. His policies and ideas have dragged China down, pooled them with other undesirable nations as partners and his hostile policy of expansion and belligerence has eroded any faith or trust world leaders and business leaders may have had in China.

Japanese companies can read the writing on the wall, get out while the getting is good. Wait until China is in a war, as Russia is, and getting out may mean selling all your stakes in China for 1 US dollar, as has happened in more than one instance in Russia.

China is going down, as long as it has the wrong leader in charge. It would be best served by turning democratic, but even just a change in leadership could improve their current situation.

Xi is toxic and can not be trusted. He has made China toxic and not to be trusted.

Now you know where the bias lies. The headline could easily reads " Half of Japanese firms in China foresee increase in investment: survey"

There’s nothing to say that any proportion at all foresee an increase. The 50% not slashing or forgoing altogether may simply be keeping investment at the same level. (Or perhaps even rescuing a little, since that would hardly be dramatic enough to fall into the ‘slashing’ contingent).

Now you know where the bias lies. The headline could easily reads " Half of Japanese firms in China foresee increase in investment: survey" and its still accurate, its half, either way. What a joke.

Not necessarily. Some of that remaining half might be maintaining the same level of, not increasing, investment.

China no longer has the low cost attraction that fueled it's econmic rise 10 years ago. Add to that the policies of the CCP which have made investment in China far riskier than before. Companies all over the world are slowly pulling out of China and there are plenty of countries eager to replace it. May not happen overnight, but it's a big mistake to even think it won't happen.

Paul, they cannot just pull out of China and no company can do that and it was something I learned years ago. Chinese factories hold many of these companies' patents hostage and getting them out from my understanding is not easy.

Companies globally are pulling out of China slowly but surely including APPLE where they have and or are shifting their operations to India.

I am surprised it has taken so long for foreign companies to jump ship and move operations and I can guarantee had the COVID not hit China would still be going strong, financially.

Not just slash investment! They should pull-out of China altogether!
