Chinese direct investment in the U.S. reached a record $45 billion in 2016. Over a third of that came to California. The pace and scale of investment dropped in 2017. California still saw nearly $5 billion in new investment. The Rhodium Group has been a leader in documenting and analyzing these trends. Founding partner Daniel Rosen has spoken at the USC U.S.-China Institute a couple of times, including in 2013. On Thursday, Feb. 8, the institute welcomes Rhodium senior analyst Cassie Gao to speak. She has written extensively on Chinese investment in the U.S. and is especially focused on California. She will discuss the most prominent sectors for Chinese investors and the investors who are making the biggest impact in California.
