About the Event
On November 14, 2016, a new report will unveil the full picture of two-way direct investment flows between the United States and China, past and present. Two-Way Street – 25 Years of US-China Direct Investment is the next step in the collaboration between the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations and Rhodium Group, with support from leading American and Chinese business associations, to better understand this increasingly important dimension of Sino-American relations.
Two-Way Street makes use of a new transactions-based proprietary database to create a fully comparable picture of American foreign direct investment (FDI) in China and Chinese FDI in the United States from 1990 to 2015. The authors find the depth of FDI integration to be greater than commonly thought, and annual patterns to be evolving rapidly. FDI is now a two-way street, driven by a complex mix of players and motives, with a diverse industry and geographic composition. The report will enable policy and business leaders on both sides of the Pacific to better manage this growing element of the bilateral economic relationship.
The authors will present the key findings of the report, followed by a panel discussion with Chinese and American executives about the growing importance of FDI in the bilateral economic relationship and the implications of the report findings.
This report is supported, in part, by CGCC Foundation. China General Chamber of Commerce - U.S.A. proudly hosts the launching reception of this report and look forward to your participation.
