And its scale and the amount of introducing foreign capital maintains the leading position for many years. In 2007, The new foreign-funded enterprises registered 5,986. The registration agreement foreign capital was 435.8 billion U.S. dollars which was increased of 12.4% than last year and the actual one was 218.9 billion U.S. dollars which was increased of 25.6%. The amount of the actual foreign direct investment in 2007 was over passing the total foreign investment in 2004.

This article studies the influential factors of FDI in Jiangsu mainly from the empirical perspective.

Sun Zhaoming, Zhang Shaojiang and Gao Xiangmei(2006) used cointegration analysis and Granger test of the economic measurement method to study the influential factors of FDI in China. And it founded that the size of the domestic market, labor costs and exchange rates is the main impact factors of FDI inflows which have shown the same direction changes. Particularly, the size of the domestic market is the main reason for attracting foreign investment; labor advantages are the second factor. The third is the exchange rate.
