There are three main types of foreign-invested enterprises, namely, the equity joint venture (EJV), the cooperative joint venture (CJV) and the wholly-owned foreign enterprise (WOFE). Together, they are referred to as foreign-invested enterprises or FIEs.
In addition to the three common types, three other types of investment are also available to foreign investors. These are the foreign-invested holding company (FIHC), the foreign-invested joint stock company (FIJSC), and the build-operate-transfer (BOT). With the relaxation of laws and regulations in accordance with China’s WTO commitments, these three types of investment are becoming more popular.
