The decline in foreign direct investment in China is starting to level off, encouraging officials in Beijing to suggest that the worst is over. While foreign direct investment was down 9.5% in March, it was a significant improvement over the 15.8% drop in February and the 32.7% fall in January, according to data from China's Ministry of Commerce. "Foreign investment actually climbed 44% in March from $5.8 billion a month earlier," the government said.
