Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprise (WFOE or WOFE) has known as the most common and acceptable company structure for significant business industries in China. It refers to the company set up in China with shares entirely owned by foreign investor(s).

WFOE is adopted and welcomed in significant industries by foreign investors.
