  • China is still an unlevel playing field; increased regulatory scrutiny, stronger local competition, rising costs, decreasing export competitiveness, and slowing economic growth are defining the new normal
  • The trade war is exacerbating this increasingly difficult situation for foreign companies in China, forcing them to make necessary adjustments to doing business in China or planning exits
  • China-based companies that trade with the United States are searching for short-term ways to mitigate the impact of tariffs; all are wondering how long this US-China trade conflict will last. But a trade resolution will not alter China's new normal reality
  • Global FDI alternatives to China are being driven by market access, risk mitigation, and cost competitiveness
  • ASEAN and India are viable alternatives to China, with ASEAN remerging as a competitive FDI and trading bloc, and India emerging as the "Next China."
