Chinese direct investments in the USA have exceeded $15 billion over the period of 2015 and for the first time ever are higher than U.S. investments in China for the same period. At the same time, U.S. Congress intends to ban Chinese investors from acquiring American assets.
According to the report of National Committee for U.S.-Chinese relations and analytical agency Rhodium Group, between the years of 1990 and 2015, direct investments from the USA in China amounted to $228 billion, while direct investments from China to the USA totaled $64 billion.
Despite the fact, that the USA surpasses China in terms of these rates by 3,56 times, investment trends shift the direction over recent years, Interfax news agency reports.
Experts believe that growth rates of Chinese economy and drastic deepening of economic restructuring process have all contributed to the higher investments from China to the USA.
