Zusammenfassung

Inhaltsangabe:Summary:
Throughout the past three years, China has become the number one country for investment, attracting more foreign direct investment than the USA. New laws allow foreign companies to acquire Chinese enterprises.
Through telephone interviews the authors collected information on the current activities and future plans of 37 Swiss manufacturing companies in China. How do traditionally export-oriented manufacturing companies see this situation? What are their strategies? Do they consider Mergers & Acquistion (M&A) as a strategic option?
The paper shows the results of a survey on the China activities of Swiss manufacturing companies up to 4000 employees, conducted by two students of the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland in 2003.
