BEIJING, May 30 (Xinhua) -- The European Business in China Business Confidence Survey 2019 once again demonstrated that, despite the U.S.-imposed tariffs on Chinese products, the enthusiasm of foreign companies to invest in China remains undiminished, a Foreign Ministry spokesperson said on Thursday.

Spokesperson Lu Kang made the remarks at a news briefing when asked for comment about the survey released by the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China.

He noted that 62 percent of the respondents view China as one of the top three destinations for current and future investment, while 56 percent of the respondents plan to increase investment in China, according to the survey.

Enterprises always choose their investing countries and cooperating partners based on their own interests and market principles, said Lu, adding that China's door of opening-up will always remain open.

"We always welcome foreign enterprises to invest in China and launch mutually beneficial cooperation, and we are committed to providing foreign investors with a fairer, more transparent, stable and predictable investment environment," Lu said.
