Is Chinese FDI a Threat to the US, Domestically or Globally?

VIEW EVENT DETAILS

Asia Society Washington and the Kissinger Institute on China and the United States at the Woodrow Wilson International Center are pleased to present a debate on Chinese Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the United States and around the world. The debate features Daniel H. Rosen of The Rhodium Group, and Derek Scissors of The Heritage Foundation. It will be moderated by J. Stapleton Roy, Director of Kissinger Institute on China and the United States.

It is estimated that China's FDI worldwide may top $1 trillion by 2020. As its second largest trading partner, the United States is expected to be a prime destination for this massive influx of capital. The investment has the potential to enrich the U.S. through increased innovation, job creation and infrastructure renewal, and build a more cooperative relationship with China. So is Chinese FDI in America a good thing? Can it bring similar benefits to the United States as Japanese investment? Or does it pose a threat to the United States, and if so, why? Our speakers, both leading experts on the Chinese economy, will debate these critical and timely issues.

Daniel H. Rosen, Ph.D., Visiting Fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, principal of economic consultancy at Rhodium Group, and author of the recent launched Asia Society report An American Open Door? Maximizing the Benefits of Chinese Foreign Direct Investment and book The Implications of China-Taiwan Economic Liberalization.

Derek Scissors, Ph.D., Research Fellow for Asia Economic Policy at The Heritage Foundation, adjunct professor at George Washington University, guest commentator on Bloomberg, CNBC, CNN, Fox and Fox Business, MSNBC and China's CCTV, and recently testified before the U.S.–China Economic and Security Review Commission.

J. Stapleton Roy, Director, Kissinger Institute on China and the United States, Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, and Former U.S. Ambassador to Singapore, China and Indonesia, and also served as Assistant Secretary of State for Intelligence and Research.
