U.S. Chamber Highlights Success Stories of Chinese Investment in the United States
BEIJING, CHINA—The U.S. Chamber of Commerce today released a report aimed at increasing mutual investment between the U.S. and China. The Faces of Chinese Investment in the United States publication contains practical information from chairmen, CEOs and other top executives of Chinese companies that have already been successful in the United States. The report highlights companies large and small, state-owned and private, and manufacturers and service providers that have invested in different locations across America.
“The Chamber is committed to increasing two-way foreign direct investment between the U.S. and China,” said U.S. Chamber President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue. “We hope this report will be useful to business leaders in China by helping describe U.S. investment opportunities and increase their interest in investing in the United States. The U.S. market is highly competitive and open to Chinese investment. There are challenges, but they can be managed. This report makes a strong case for why more Chinese business leaders should come and invest here.”
Donohue unveiled the report in Beijing, China, where he is participating in the U.S.-China Investment Cooperation Forum. The Chamber and China Center for International Economic Exchanges (CCIEE) co-hosted this first-of-its-kind forum to detail both the U.S. and Chinese investment environments, highlight shared opportunities, and provide information on the experiences of American and Chinese investors in the United States. It also offered a platform to communicate directly with several hundred Chinese company executives considering investment in the United States.
“Strengthening our economic ties will benefit both nations, and we hope that the Chinese will continue to take steps to reduce barriers in the market to help American companies realize the full potential of their investments in China,” Donohue added. “We had productive discussions with government and private sector leaders at the Investment Forum and will continue to work together on ways to increase opportunity and investment.”
