With combined annual investment reaching almost $60 billion in 2016, foreign direct investment (FDI) flows are an increasingly important dimension of U.S.-China economic relations.

Yet recent political developments are changing the outlook in complex ways: in China, worries about capital flight have led Beijing to restrict outbound investment, while slowing inbound FDI has led to promises of fairer treatment to foreign firms. In the United States, the Trump administration and Congress are re-evaluating long-standing FDI policies as the rapid increase of Chinese investment has rekindled existing national security and economic concerns.

AmCham Shanghai invites you to attend this session on June 26th, 8:45am – 10:30am at JW Marriott Hotel Tomorrow Square. We are pleased to host the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations and Rhodium Group to present the 2017 update of the Two-Way Street report and discuss the outlook for two-way U.S.-China FDI in light of the current policy environment.

This program is built on the U.S -China FDI Project (www.us-china-fdi.com) led by the Rhodium Group and National Committee in partnership with AmCham Shanghai and the Chinese General Chamber of Commerce – USA. This event will be the China launch of the 2017 report.
