Outward foreign direct investment (OFDI) is of pivotal importance to the economic development and technological progress of a country. The current situation of OFDI in China varies greatly between the eastern, central and western regions due to various reasons of history, geography and economic environment. Based on the existing studies related to the synergistic effects of China's OFDI, the influencing factors and the micro role of enterprises, this paper analyzed the current situation of China’s OFDI, learned from classical theories in the field of OFDI, and put forward related policy recommendations. The paper thought that the country should improve the technology level and marketization, meantime, optimize the industrial structure and enrich the investment fields. Besides, strengthening the development and construction of the central and western regions can help those regions reach their full potential.
