(08-18 10:52)

Foreign direct investment (FDI) into the Chinese mainland fell sharply again in July, slumping 16.95 percent from a year earlier to US$7.81 billion, the Ministry of Commerce said on Monday.
The sharp decline was in contrast with a mere 0.2-percent seen in June, according to the ministry.
For the first seven months, the FDI, which excludes investment in the financial sector, stood at US$71.14 billion, down 0.35 percent from the same period last year, it said. --Xinhua
