After the enterprises submits the hard copy application, they will be granted an account to access the National Foreign Investment Information System to monitor the processing of the application. At the same time, the Investment Registration Authority also uses the National Foreign Investment Information System to receive, process and return investment registration results, update the status of application processing and issue code for the investment project.
