The foreign direct investment in China dropped for the fourth consecutive month in February, after the companies cut operations spending amid the current decline in production rates and growth in China as well as European sovereign debt crisis, which has worked to create a state of stagnation in the international investment.

The foreign direct investment in China fell by 0.9 percent to $7.73 billion, compared with January reading which fell by 0.3%, while overseas spending in China dropped during the first two months in 2012 by 0.6% to $ 17.7 billion.

The outlook for foreign investment in China is grim, with high operating costs and costs, which caused many problems for companies, and we find this clear from the comparison between the current data and the overseas spending in China during 2011, which reached $116 billion and it is expected not to exceed $100 billion this year.
