Since the announcement of China’s “Open Door” policy in the late 1970s, the nation has received more than $1.6TN in foreign direct investment. Now new data suggests the economic impact of that investment may be far greater than previously estimated. Professor Michael J. Enright joins AmCham to present the findings of his ground-breaking research into the effect of total FDI on China’s economic growth and employment and, more specifically, the role of US-sourced investment in China.

Following Professor Enright’s presentation, there will be a Q&A panel featuring companies who have made significant investments in China over the last 10 years:

  • Genevieve Hilton, BASF
  • Patrick Powers, Rockwell Automation
  • Karmen Yeung, KPMG
  • Steve Olson, Hinrich Foundation (moderator)

Join us to learn more about the power of FDI to transform economies and how you can harness that power to make the case for your own investments.

First 15-20 minutes is for networking
