Beijing: Foreign Direct Investment to China surged to USD 9.41 billion in July registering 24.13 percent year on year increase, as the country continues to have robust growth in investment from abroad despite economic slowdown.

The data does not cover incoming investments in banking, securities and insurance sectors.

The service sector saw a steady increase of FDI inflows in the first seven months, up 15.78 percent year on year and accounting for 49.93 percent of the total FDI inflow during the period, state-run Xinhua reported.

FDI in China’s manufacturing sector dropped 2.42 percent, taking a 41.18 percent share of the inflow, the ministry said.
