The U.S.-China relationship has been shifting dramatically in recent years, moving from engagement to strategic competition. Venture capital (VC) investment between China and the United States – like all other channels of economic engagement – has not escaped the impacts of this sea change and is increasingly viewed through national security lenses. Significant regulatory changes and political tensions, combined with market turbulence, have caused flows of bilateral VC investment – which reached historic heights in 2018 – to retreat in both directions. With final implementing regulations of the U.S.’s Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act (FIRRMA) and Export Controls Reform Act (ECRA) scheduled for rollout in early 2020, the decline in U.S.-China VC flows is likely to deepen further.
On January 15, join the National Committee and Rhodium Group for the latest installment of the U.S.-China Investment Project: a discussion and analysis of the latest trends in U.S.-China VC flows. The session will feature a briefing on the latest trends in U.S.-China VC flows by Rhodium’s Thilo Hanemann and Adam Lysenko and a panel discussion/Q&A moderated by NCUSCR president Stephen A. Orlins.
