SMEs go China: More and more German companies are increasing their presence in Asia, particularly in the People's Republic of China. This trend is evident not only in large companies, but by now also plays an important role in the SME sector.
It is exactly these medium-sized companies that account for about 90% of German technology. The Chinese markets are characterized by an enormous potential and rapid growth. They are still far from the point of saturation. According to official sources, in 2011 the country´s state-owned and large private companies have earned profits of 2.8 trillion RMB. Compared with the same period just a year earlier, this represents a growth of 28.3 percent. China is now the fifth largest investor worldwide. In 2010, China's foreign direct investment had grown to 67.8 billion U.S. dollars. That was over 40 percent more than the previous year and the trend continues.
