Beijing - AFP

Foreign direct investment in China fell 8.7 percent in July, the government said on Thursday, as the economy continues to feel the pinch of slowing global growth and the European debt crisis. Overseas companies invested $7.58 billion in factories and other projects in China last month, the commerce ministry announced. For the first seven months of the year, FDI fell 3.6 percent on year to $66.67 billion. The July result represents the worst fall since December and continues a downward trend that goes back to November, with the exception of May, when it eked out a marginal gain of 0.05 percent. \"The slowdown in world economic growth, increasing uncertainties and a lack of proper solution to the European debt crisis\" were external factors contributing to the decline, said ministry spokesman Shen Danyang. He also cited volatility in global financial markets as well as the US government\'s call for boosting the country\'s manufacturing sector and encouraging investment domestically as causes for the decline. Also, emerging economies such as India, Brazil and Russia were \"becoming new hot spots for multinational companies\", he said. Within China, tight land supply, rising labour costs and still suppressed domestic demand have impaired the Asian giant\'s appeal to foreign investors, Shen said. But the country will remain competitive \"in the long run\" thanks to the government\'s stimulus efforts to boost growth, a stable political outlook and improving legal system, he added. Growth in China, the world\'s second-largest economy, has slowed for six consecutive quarters and expanded 7.6 percent in the three months ended June 30, its worst performance in three years. The government said last week that exports and imports both decreased in July as the country\'s trade conditions deteriorated. Shen said: \"We expect foreign trade in the second half of the year will face a more severe environment.\" Still, Premier Wen Jiabao has expressed confidence that China will be able to meet its targets for this year, including growth of at least 7.5 percent, the official Xinhua news agency reported Wednesday. \"We have the conditions and the ability to definitely meet this year\'s economic and social targets,\" he said. China\'s economy grew 9.2 percent in 2011 and 10.4 percent in 2010. The International Monetary Fund last month forecast China\'s economy would rebound in the second half of 2012 to expand 8.0 percent annually as government policies to spur growth take effect. Authorities have cut interest rates and lowered reserve requirements for banks in a bid to spur lending to help bolster the economy. Recent poor economic data have increased speculation they may carry out more loosening steps.on four hits in seven innings and Mike Trout homered and scored twice Wednesday in the Los Angeles Angels\' 8-4 win over Cleveland. Santana (6-10), who had lost his last seven home starts against the Indians, walked one and struck out four. Chris Iannetta homered and drove in two runs for the Angels, who got two RBI from Vernon Wells. Kendrys Morales had three hits and scored twice for LA, which has won two straight following a three-game losing streak. Jason Isringhausen allowed a three-run home run to Shin-Soo Choo in the eighth and Kevin Jepsen pitched s 1-2-3 ninth for the Angels. Cleveland starter Roberto Hernandez (0-1), whose used to pitch under the name Fausto Carmona, started and went six innings, allowing eight runs on 10 hits, with no walks or strikeouts. The Indians have lost two straight and three of their last four.
