It is a crime in China, specifically the crime of giving bribes to a unit, to give the property or money (such as giving rebates) to xiaojinku (i.e., coffer) of SOEs.  The crime is unique compared with the offences under the FCPA.  For example, the FCPA prohibits payments to foreign officials, not to foreign governments (Page 20 of A Resource Guide to the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act).  However, with the mentality under the FCPA to make some payments (such as rebates) to Chinese SOEs such as Chinese State-owned hospitals (which are regarded as foreign governments under the FCPA), a business could find themselves meeting some troubles unexpectedly, and the troubles could be as bad as criminal implication.
