Chinese planners say they will focus on attracting foreign investments that bring valuable skills and technology rather than large amounts of cash, the <i>Wall Street Journal</i> reported. The new approach was detailed Thursday in an official document from the National Development and Reform Commission and follows a year of heated debate. China attracted more than US$70 billion in foreign investment last year.

The new plan outlines broad principles and says regulators will look more closely at foreign takeovers of local companies and issues of "national economic security".
