AmCham Shanghai will hold the China Outbound Investment Forum and Exhibition on Tuesday, November 13 at the Shanghai Marriott Hotel City Centre to offer insights on recent developments relating to US-China foreign direct investments (FDI) and to provide an outlook of the future climate for China outbound investments.


According to the Rhodium Group's report "Two-Way Street: 2018 Update" on US-China direct investment trends, China's FDI to the U.S. has experienced a steep decline since it reached the peak of $43.4 billion in 2016. The major reason is that both sides have tightened up policies regarding foreign investments. China's central government has tightened control over outbound investments and leveraged private investors, while the U.S. Government has increased investment screening by the Committee of Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS).

根据荣鼎集团(Rhodium Group)发布的《双行道—中美双边直接投资趋势(2018年更新)》报告中指出,中国对美的直接投资自2016年达到434亿美元的峰值之后经历了急剧下降。下降的主要原因是中美双方都收紧了各自对外投资的政策。一方面,中国政府针对境外投资和举债经营收购者加强了相关调控;另一方面,美国外资投资委员会(CFIUS)也加强了对投资的审查力度。

Investment trends are indicative of the overall policy environment. Due to strong governmental support, China's FDI to the U.S. in high-tech and transportation sectors are increasing against the backdrop of declining investments in real estate, entertainment, and consumer products and services. Nonetheless, these sectors are not entirely immune from the impact of CFIUS screening. As a result, growth has not been substantial.


This Forum intends to: 1) encourage and support Chinese investment in the U.S.; 2) discuss opportunities and challenges of Chinese investment in the U.S. under current US-China trade relationship. 3) provide investment regulation updates.
