Following over 20 years of minimal to no growth, the Chinese economy is finally reaching the potential predicted by many financial analysts in the mid nineteen eighties. As a result, many Hedge Fund managers and portfolio stock companies are looking to the East and for ways to invest in China.

Early investors are obviously reaping the benefits from the manufacture and distribution of fundamentals such as clothing and computers. Furniture too is a profitable investment; though this has been checked somewhat by recent stories of spurious materials and the consumer effect of moving towards “greener” and home grown manufacture.

Another area where investment has been huge, and returns generous, is throughout the toy industry. An industry that never seems to suffer particularly hard no matter the worldwide financial situation; toys can be produced cheaply, effectively and sold for huge profits in western malls and shopping districts.

Many other opportunities to invest in China are out there and clearly signposted. For example, China is second only to the US in its consumption of oil; whilst being both the biggest consumer and producer of coal. Indeed, investment in this sector is booming despite the global collective towards environmental concerns.

For those looking for a greener, and more responsible investment, the huge railway project could be attractive. Already one of the best in the world, (in metropolis areas anyway), the Chinese government recognize the benefits of mass public transportation clearly. With contracts passed to western companies as much as Chinese tenders, this really could be a clever investment.

Before rushing out to Beijing to invest in China however, do be warned. Resilience, determination and a sense of bravery will be called for as the Chinese economy, (as with any other fledging market), can be volatile and prove unsteady; particularly as the world continues to ride the global recession.
