To WFOE or not to WFOE, that's the China question : can one go it alone in China?

Authors Vanhonacker, Wilfried R.
Issue Date 1996-12
Summary Equity joint ventures (EJVs) have been the dominant foreign direct investment mode to enter China. With the approval climate improving, the number of wholly foreign-owned enterprises (WFOEs) has been increasing in the last couple of years. This paper investigates in some depth the question of whether WFOEs are a realistic alternative to EJVs. The discussion focuses on strategic, legal, political, as well as operational issues and concerns.
