This book provides a critical and timely insight into the relationship between foreign direct investment (FDI) and environmental outcomes in China. The book links the environment and corruption with China's large inflows of FDI. It investigates the effects of economic development and foreign investment on pollution in China; the effects of corruption and governance quality on FDI location choice in China; and the relationship between environmental regulation stringency and FDI, as well as the role of corruption played in this relationship.
