In April 2014, Asia Society and the Rhodium Group will launch a report on Chinese high technology investment in the United States. The study will survey the state of play and is intended to provide common ground for the ongoing debate, often ideological and acrimonious, over U.S-China high tech trade and investment in sectors such as information technology, life sciences, and clean technology.
Key topics include drivers of Chinese high-tech investment, current trends, and risks and opportunities for the U.S. posed by the investment boom. The report will also offer a series of recommendations to policymakers and business leaders in both the U.S. and China.
Drawing from the Rhodium Group’s proprietary database of Chinese investment in the U.S., the report’s scope will be national, but given the industry’s distribution, will be most relevant to audiences in California, New York, and other high-tech clusters in the U.S. The report will be co-authored by Daniel H. Rosen and Thilo Hanemann of the Rhodium Group.
The new study builds on two previous Asia Society-Rhodium Group efforts, An American Open Door? Maximizing the Benefits of Chinese Foreign Direct Investment (April 2011), which looked at Chinese direct investment into the U.S.; and Chinese Direct Investment in California (October 2012), which focused on investments in California.
The report will be launched in the U.S. at an events in San Francisco on April 1 and in New York on April 17. The Chinese-language version of the report will be released at events in Shanghai on April 22 in partnership with the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai, and in Beijing on April 24 in partnership with the American Chamber of Commerce in China.
