Despite the impact of Covid-19, Jiangsu has attracted a record of foreign investment for the first half year of 2022. According to the statistics of Ministry of Commerce of China, the actual utilization of foreign investment of Jiangsu exceeded 21 billion US dollars with a year-on-year increase of 27.5%, fully revealing the resilience of Jiangsu’s open economy.

To help the already-established foreign projects and attract potential investment to encounter the negative effect of covid-19, Jiangsu provincial government has made great efforts which include organizing different surveys, interviews and conferences to understand the concerns and difficulties the foreign investment encountered in operation; setting-up the express-service mechanism and special-purpose work unit to help foreign investment to solve the problems of interruption of supply chain, shortage of labor and other problems caused by Covid-19. Jiangsu has also made the policy to encourage the established foreign projects to invest the profit in the fields of high-end and smart manufacturing, and producer services. The first half of 2022 has already witnessed a 3 billion US dollar investment of this kind.

Swedish investment has always been an important component of the open economy of Jiangsu. Ever since the first Swedish project, SSPC, in 1982, many Swedish companies have set up their branches in Jiangsu, such as Ericsson, Astra Zeneca, Atlas Copco, Epiroc, Sandvik, Autoliv and many more, and especially during 2021 and 2022, Jiangsu has attracted Scania’s first factory in China and Atlas Copco’s Compressor R&D and Manufacturing Headquarters-China.
