China eases restriction on foreign investment of listed companies
font size    

Multinationals will be allowed to invest in the Chinese currency-dominated A share market through their investment subsidiaries in China as of July 1, said the Ministry of Commerce on Wednesday.

Previously, China's A share market was only open to foreign corporations and organizations that had overseas assets of not less than 100 million U.S. dollars or managed overseas assets of not less than 500 million dollars.

The new supplementary regulation released by the ministry requires foreign funded investment companies to have registered capital of 30million dollars. The move is seen as a sign the country is loosening control of its capital market.

The revision was "profound and significant", said Zhou Jia, chief financial officer of Kodak (China).

Many of the world's heavyweight multinationals have established investment subsidiaries in China, Zhou said.

The revision is due to take effect on July 1.
