This Survey was prepared by Margit Molnar under the supervision of Patrick Lenain. The Survey benefitted from contributions by Ting Yan, Yusha Li, Yiying Shi, Assaf Geva, Zhihao Chen and Ran Xu. Hyunjeong Hwang provided the statistical assistance and Stephanie Henry provided editorial support. The Survey was discussed at a meeting of the Economic and Development Review Committee on 14 January 2019, with participation of representatives of the Chinese government led by the State Information Centre. The cut-off date for data and information used in the Survey is 15 March 2019. The previous Survey of China was issued in March 2017. The Survey is published on the responsibility of the Secretary General of the OECD.
We hope that the data included in this report will provide both governments with an accurate and nuanced view of the experiences our member companies are having on the ground in China, and thereby help to inform the negotiators regarding the issues of greatest importance to our members. Yes, there are challenges — many longstanding, and many past commitments remain unfulfilled. That said, China is still a critically important market for many American companies, and the bilateral economic relationship is too important to not get right. As you will see in the following pages, the recent US-China tensions have led 89% of our members to adopt a pessimistic view regarding the bilateral trade relationship. Rising geopolitical uncertainties have led close to one quarter of our members to delay investments in China. But bright prospects for domestic consumption and a modestly improved investment environment have helped China remain a top investment destination globally, meaning that it remains as important as ever for the two sides to continue their efforts to move the relationship onto a more solid footing.
The annual Coffee Survey by CoffeeSalon has become a regular contribution to the development of the Chinese coffee sector. Positive feedback on our last years report from professionals in the field encouraged us to draw up another report this year. This year we received abundant suggestions and support for making the 2019 survey even better.
