Since the reform and development, China's foreign direct investment has continued to increase. During this period, China's economic development has been in a state of continuous growth and has attracted widespread attention around the world. However, foreign direct investment is mainly concentrated in the eastern coastal areas of China, with less investment in the central and western regions and the northeastern region, resulting in large regional economic development differences between the eastern and western regions of China, which is not conducive to the comprehensive and coordinated development of national economic growth. This article starts with the development status of China's regional economy and the regional distribution of foreign direct investment in China, analyzes the impact of foreign direct investment on China's regional economic growth, and proposes improvement measures to guide foreign investors to make correct investments.
