China Outbound, Bound?

Over the last several years, Chinese investors have been on a buying spree snapping up assets ranging from soccer teams to semiconductor manufacturers around the world. What has driven this global investment gold rush? Where are investments being made and why? And what impact has government efforts to impose additional capital controls and rein in large Chinese firms had on outbound investment?

The US China Business Council, American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai, and the Atlantic Council are pleased to host a breakfast briefing to address these questions. This briefing, sponsored by HSBC, will feature:

Keynote Speaker: Tim Stratford, Managing Partner at Covington & Burling
