Accountancy in China

Country overview

The People’s Republic of China is situated in eastern Asia on the western shore of the Pacific Ocean, with an area of 9.6 million square kilometres. As the world’s most populous country, China has a population exceeding 1.2 billion, which makes up 22% of the world total. The official language is Mandarin.

Economic overview

With the entry into WTO in 2001, China’s economy is developing increasingly fast. Many overseas companies find China a good country to invest in. The strongest labour force is in East China. The currency for China is RMB. A floating exchange rate is used for exchange controls.

Transport infrastructure

China’s transport infrastructure is comparatively convenient in the east area. For business travel, China International Airlines or China Oriental Airlines are good choices. Goods can be transported by road, rail, inland waterway, pipeline, etc. The transport infrastructure in west China is in infant stage, but with China’s ‘Go West’ policy taking centre stage, investment in the interior provinces is increasing. As a result, the transport infrastructure is developing fast.
