China's Ministry of Commerce says Chinese firms directly invested in about 3,600 overseas companies in 151 countries and regions. The total volume was nearly 347 billion yuan (50 billion U.S. dollars), which is up a tenth of a percent from last year. Meanwhile, the finance ministry says during the first half of the year, the public budget income exceeded 10 trillion yuan, while expenditure was more than 12 trillion. The ministry says the fiscal revenue growth matched the GDP expansion and remains healthy. #FDI
