China-US two-way FDI reaches all-time high in 2016

Xinhua, Washington :
Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) between China and U.S. passed 60 billion U.S. dollars in 2016, more than any other year in history, said a report jointly released by the Rhodium Group and the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations (NCUSCR).
"U.S.-China two-way FDI reached an all-time high in 2016, elevating the importance of this facet of the bilateral economic relationship," said the joint report.
"What used to be a one-way street - with money flowing predominantly from the United States to China - is now a two-way highway with tens of billions of dollars in annual FDI flowing in each direction," it added.
According to the joint report, the cumulative value of U.S. FDI transactions in China reached over 240 billion U.S. dollars by the end of 2016, while the cumulative Chinese FDI in the U.S. totaled 110 billion dollars by the end of last year.
With Chinese economy growing robustly, Chinese investment in U.S. have expanded at record pace. In 2016, Chinese companies invested a record 46 billion dollars in U.S., tripling the amount seen in 2015 and a tenfold increase compared to just five years ago, said the joint report.
Apart from the rapid growth for two-way FDIs, the variety of investors and target industries have also expanded from traditional energy and real estate industries to consumer services and products industries, reflecting China's growing appetite for more investment in order to meet the growing domestic consumption demand.
According to the joint report, in contrast to the dominance of fossil fuel investments before 2013, more than 90 percent of Chinese FDI in 2016 focused on services and advanced manufacturing.
In 2016, real estate and hospitality, information and communications technology, entertainment, consumer products and financial services stood out as primary targeted industries for Chinese investment in U.S., said the joint report.
Chinese investors further expanded and deepened their footprint in U.S. in 2016. U.S. coastal states, such as New York and California were still the major beneficiaries of Chinese investment, while South and Midwest states also received significant Chinese investment in 2016.
A separate report released by Rhodium Group showed that all 50 states and 98 percent of congressional districts in U.S. hosted operations of Chinese-owned companies by the end of 2016.
Private investors have become the major drive for the rapidly-growing Chinese investment in U.S, said the joint report. In 2016, about 79 percent of the total Chinese investment in U.S. were made by private companies.
The joint report expected that the Chinese investment in U.S. would moderate in 2017 compared to the record high in 2016, but the two-way FDI flows will remain a major component of U.S.-China economic interaction for years to come.
U.S. robust economic outlook, the large consumer end market and its large base of technology and brand assets will remain attractive to Chinese investors.
