2018 AmCham Shanghai China Outbound Investment Forum & Exhibition
Paul Dwyer, Director and Head of International Tax and Transfer Pricing, will be attending the AmCham Shanghai China Outbound Investment Forum & Exhibition as a panelist to share key account concerns when making outbound investments from China to the States.
AmCham Shanghai will hold the China Outbound Investment Forum and Exhibition on Tuesday, November 13 at the Shanghai Marriott Hotel City Centre to offer insights on recent developments relating to US-China foreign direct investments (FDI) and to provide an outlook of the future climate for China outbound investments. Dezan Shira & Associates' Director, Head of International Tax and Transfer Pricing, Paul Dwyer, will speak at the panel of forum to share the key tax concerns when making outbound investment from China to the States.
According to the Rhodium Group's report "Two-Way Street: 2018 Update" on US-China direct investment trends, China's FDI to the U.S. has experienced a steep decline since it reached the peak of $43.4 billion in 2016. The major reason is that both sides have tightened up policies regarding foreign investments. China's central government has tightened control over outbound investments and leveraged private investors, while the U.S. Government has increased investment screening by the Committee of Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS).
Investment trends are indicative of the overall policy environment. Due to strong governmental support, China's FDI to the U.S. in high-tech and transportation sectors are increasing against the backdrop of declining investments in real estate, entertainment, and consumer products and services. Nonetheless, these sectors are not entirely immune from the impact of CFIUS screening. As a result, growth has not been substantial.
This Forum intends to: 1) encourage and support Chinese investment in the U.S.; 2) discuss opportunities and challenges of Chinese investment in the U.S. under current US-China trade relationship. 3) provide investment regulation updates.
