Since the reform and opening up, China’s economy has achieved continuous development and an increasing flow of foreign direct investment. This study focuses on the impact of enterprises’ total factor productivity on the outward foreign direct investment of companies at a micro level. The data comes from Chinese manufacturing companies from 2005 to 2007. We use a Probit model to empirically test the impact of total factor productivity of Chinese manufacturing companies on their outward foreign direct investment decisions. The test results show the following evidence: firstly, the total factor productivity of an enterprise is an influencing factor of Chinese enterprises' outward direct foreign investment decisions; secondly, the higher the total factor productivity, the greater the probability of outward direct foreign investment.
