US-China trade

Two-way street – 2018 update


Published 10 April 2018 | 1 minute read

As part of the ongoing US-China FDI project, Rhodium Group and the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations seek to clarify trends and patterns in bilateral foreign direct investment (FDI) flows between the world’s two largest economies.

The March 2018 version discusses the noteworthy investment policy measures taken by nations during the following time period: November 2017 – February 2018. The majority of new investment policy measures were geared towards creating more favourable investment conditions, the report states. However, the overall share of more restrictive or regulatory investment policy measures increased 29 percent during the reporting period, the highest ratio since 2010.


Rhodium provides original, independent research, data and analytics on a range of critical global topics – from Chinese economic development to global climate change - to the public, corporate, financial, government, philanthropic and non-profit sectors.
