After reaching a record $60 billion in 2016, two-way US-China foreign direct investment (FDI) flows have been squeezed into a diminished position from both sides of the Pacific. In 2017 the value of completed Chinese FDI transactions dropped by over a third as Beijing re-imposed capital controls and Washington toughened screening of high-technology acquisitions. The value of newly announced transactions dropped by more than 90%. The 2018 outlook is more uncertain still. President Trump has designated China a strategic competitor, a label not applied since 2000, and Washington is contemplating a disruptive array of more restrictive China policies to respond to perceived unfairness, including greatly stepped up investment screening.

AmCham Shanghai, Rhodium Group and the National Committee on US-China Relations will host an event on April 17th, 8:30-10:30 AM at Le Royal Meridien Shanghai to release a study that will shape the public debate on these urgent topics: Two-Way Street, the definitive analysis of US-China FDI trends from 1990 through 2017. The event is the most important presentation of research on US-China FDI of 2018, and will feature the authors and a panel discussion with U.S. and Chinese business leaders.

This program is built on the U.S -China FDI Project led by the Rhodium Group and National Committee in partnership with AmCham Shanghai. This event will be the China launch of the 2018 report.
