Please join the Asia Society and Rhodium Group for the launch of a new report on the Chinese investment surge in U.S. high tech. As Chinese outbound investment shifts from natural resources into more advanced, innovation-intensive industries, a rapidly increasing share is going into U.S. IT, cleantech, biotech, advanced transportation, and more. What are the hottest sectors drawing the most Chinese investment? Which Chinese firms are leading the surge and what is driving them? What are the economic and political factors behind these investments, and what are the most serious challenges they face? What is the impact on U.S. jobs, the tax base, and national security?


Cheng Lixin, Chairman and CEO of ZTE (USA) and President of North American Region
Mark S. Greenfield, Partner, Blank Rome LLP
Thilo Hanemann, Research Director, Rhodium Group
