Tapping the Potential of China-U.S. investment (6)

(Beijing Review)

09:08, August 31, 2012

"A major impediment to Chinese investment in the United States comes down to a simple lack of understanding," said Donohue.

Many Chinese companies are often unfamiliar with the U.S. political and business environment and they overestimate the problems they will face in investing in the United States.

By the same token, the United States must do a better job of making Chinese companies welcome and aware of the investment opportunities, he said.

Wan Jifei, Chairman of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, also said most Chinese companies have limited knowledge of the United States. For example, Chinese investors are only familiar with metropolises like New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, but lack understanding of the diversity of regional economies in the United States.

Meanwhile, some Chinese investors' motivations are politicized in the United States, which has dampened confidence and enthusiasm, he said.

"To realize a higher level of opening up in investment between China and the United States, what's needed is not the further opening of the markets, but an open mind and a broad vision," said Wan.
