In Chapter 2, we will list all retrieval codes of BCI according to the Table order in the publication.
We hope you may easily find the retrieval codes for the data you need in Chapter 2. However, it might be helpful if you are familiar with how we construct these retrieval codes. Generally speaking, each retrieval code has two parts:
(1) The first part consists of a certain English abbreviation to represent a particular "concept" in the business condition statistics. For example:
|II -- approved Inward Investment.
||IO -- approved Outward Investment.
||IC -- approved Investment in China.
||LR -- Registration of Land.
||BR -- Registration of Building.
||CP -- Construction Permit.
||OP -- Occupancy Permit.
||EXO -- EXport Order.
||JLEAD -- LEADing Index.
||JCOIN -- COINcident Index.
(2) The second part is a "modifier" following an "@" sign and placed right behind the initial English abbreviation. For example, II@HK is the retrieval code for "Approved Overseas & Foreign Investment -- from Hong Kong" ; IO@JAP is the retrieval code for "Approved Outward Investment -- to Japan" ; IC@SZX is the retrieval code for "Approved Indirect Mainland Investment -- Shumchum" , etc.
