Tapping the Potential of China-U.S. investment (2)

(Beijing Review)

09:08, August 31, 2012

Small in scale

Increased two-way investment has already promoted economic growth and created jobs in both countries.

The United States has been a major foreign investor in the Chinese market for the past 30 years. According to China's Ministry of Commerce, as of the end of 2011, U.S. investors had set up more than 61,000 companies in China, with paid-in foreign direct investment (FDI) of $67.6 billion, while Chinese companies' direct investment in the United States only totaled $6 billion.

"U.S. investment in China accounts for a small proportion, less than 10 percent, of China's total FDI and China's investment in the United States is even less than that of some small economies, both of which do not match their respective economic size," said Zeng Peiyan, Chairman of CCIEE, a top think tank in China.

Chinese investment in the U.S. market is growing at a rate of about 200 percent a year, said Thomas J. Donohue, President and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. "But of $2.3 trillion in FDI in the United States, only 1 percent flows from China," he said.
