BEIJING, Nov. 10 (Xinhua) -- Northwest China's Shaanxi Province saw rising foreign investment in the first three quarters of the year, according to the data recently released by the Shaanxi Provincial Department of Commerce.
The department said that in the period from January to September this year, a total of 195 foreign-invested enterprises were established in the province.

It successfully gained investment from the large companies such as Eaton, a global technology leader in power management solutions based in the USA, Geely Automobile, and Xuzhou Coal Mining Group.
