Beijing - AFP

Foreign direct investment (FDI) into China rose 6.37 percent year-on-year in the first eight months of 2013, the government said Tuesday, adding it was a sign of investor confidence in the world\'s second-biggest economy. Incoming FDI, which excludes financial sectors, reached $79.77 billion for the January-August period, the commerce ministry said in a statement. For August alone the figure was at $8.38 billion, up 0.62 percent on last year. That represented a substantial slowdown after rises of 24.13 percent in July and 20.12 percent in June. Commerce ministry spokesman Shen Danyang said in a statement that investment maintained \"quite fast growth\" in the eight-month period. \"FDI growth is expected to be higher than last year,\" he said, adding that improved momentum since February had proven foreign investors\' confidence in China\'s competitiveness. Recent financial market turmoil in developing economies would not affect China\'s recovery trend, he said. Incoming investment from the EU rose significantly, up 24.3 percent to $5.44 billion, as it did from the US, up 18.0 percent to $2.50 billion. But the vast majority of investment into China comes from a group of 10 Asian countries and regions including Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japan, and FDI from them only rose 7.87 percent on year to $68.63 billion in the eight-month period. The figure for Japan alone was $5.56 billion, up 9.45 percent. Direct overseas investment from China in non-financial sectors rose 18.5 percent year-on-year to $56.5 billion. Investment in the seven major economies of Hong Kong, the south-east Asian grouping ASEAN, the EU, Australia, the US, Russia and Japan totalled $39.11 billion, up 3.0 percent on-year. But investment into Japan fell 25.0 percent and into Hong Kong it was down 11.4 percent. China\'s economy, the world\'s second largest, expanded 7.7 percent in 2012, its slowest pace in 13 years. Growth stood at 7.7 percent in the first three months of this year and slowed further to 7.5 percent in the April-June period, but recent data have pointed to renewed strength in the economy.
