New Neighbors 2018 Update: Chinese FDI in the United States by Congressional District

May 15 , 2018

The 2018 report finds that the value of completed Chinese FDI transactions dropped by over a third (35%) to $29 billion in 2017 as Beijing imposed restrictions over outbound investment and Washington toughened screening of high-tech acquisitions. The value of newly announced transactions dropped by more than 90%. The impact from this decline in FDI activity was also felt on the local level: planned greenfield projects were delayed, fewer jobs were added to Chinese payrolls compared to the previous year, and some Chinese firms even began seeking buyers for their U.S. assets. The 2018 report can be found here.
