China’s outbound investment is stirring great expectations in the US and globally. But might a shift be underway? Driven by regulatory changes, Chinese foreign direct investment flows into North America and Europe dropped by $80 billion last year to $30 billion. What changes drove this decline? And in what ways did US-China trade tensions play into FDI dynamics? Join the Atlantic Council and Baker McKenzie on Thursday, June 6, 2019, from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. (EDT) for a discussion on the recent trends in Chinese FDI in North America and Europe. The event will mark the launch of Baker McKenzie’s latest report, Chinese FDI: A New Reality.
