China tech indexes intro copy

China is shifting to a technology-driven ‘new economy’. It’s transforming from an export-oriented and fixed-asset investment dependent “old economy” to domestic consumption and technology focused innovation, reinventing itself as a predominantly services-oriented economy. A digital transformation is underpinning this structural change.

China is now a global leader in electric vehicle manufacture, with the largest market in Industrial Robots1 and with over 850 million active internet and smart phone users, it is the largest e-commerce market in the world2.

Investors need innovative solutions that are unconstrained by traditional industry classifications in today’s evolving market.

MSCI has created a set of China Tech Indexes, which offer investors access to the full China Tech growth story.
