They keep crying 'forced tech transfer', whent in fact what hey want are special privileges that they used to enjoy when China first opened up and was keen to get them to invest in China.

Perhaps you've never tried to do a deal in the United States or Europe.  Try negotiating with GE or Siemens sometime and see what their stance on IP is.

If forced tech transfers are a lie, why did the Chinese government take steps to make them illegal, in 2018?

The fact of the matter is that forced tech transfers, despite now being illegal, are still quite common. In the past 24 months 30% of chemicals and petroleum companies, 28% of medical-device companies, 27% of pharmaceutical companies and 21% of automotive companies reported such transfers.

It is all "part of the cost of doing business in China", as Chinese business like to say.

pnp stated that some businesses can have 100% foreign ownership in China. Yes, this is true, however, what he is not stating is that those businesses are outside of the sphere of technology and/or government interest. For example, a pub, restaurant, or bar can be wholly owned by a non-Chinese person, without having the requirement of a Chinese business partner. A school must have a Chinese business partner because China's education sector is under the control of the government, and education benefits the government. Any business which utilizes new or emerging technologies MUST be majority run by a Chinese partner. That is the cost of these companies' doing business in China. Any and all new technology MUST be transferred to the Chinese as a "cost of doing business". Do you really think that if a foreign company came up with new tech at their Chinese plant, that they would be allowed to keep it all to themselves? You are dreaming, if you say yes, sure!

The finance sector is VERY important to China, yet it is now open to 100% foreign ownesrship!   Your examples of bars and coffeeshops are just a distraction!

Foreign ownership of securities, insurance, and fund management Companies, yes, but the rest of the finance sector, ie: banking, is still under government control. As well, these companies don't open up until the spring of 2020. The government had originally planned on 2021, but changed their decision to a year earlier. Securities, insurance, and fund management firms also have nothing to do with technology transfers, so who's the one trying to distract here?

" these companies don't open up until the spring of 2020. "

Wow, never thought you are in such a hurry to invest;  2020 is just round the corner, please be patient!  They have already brought it forward by one year to suit people like you who can't wait to invest in China's booming market!
