US-China Investment trends in2020
After big declines in 2017 and 2018, US-China investment flows flattened out in 2019 as the bilateral relationship continued to sour.
Chinese FDI in the US dropped to $5 billion – a level not seen since the global financial crisis in 2009 – as Beijing’s outbound policies, US regulatory scrutiny and an uncertain outlook for US-China relations continued to weigh on investor risk appetite. US FDI in China edged up slightly compared to previous years to $14 billion as US firms continued to bet on Chinese consumer demand and seized opportunities from an easing of restrictions on foreign ownership in some sectors, including automotive and finance.
