The CEOs’ China Operations Club meeting was then followed by the live, 79 location nation-wide NCUSCR China Town Hall webcast. The program partners saw a great turnout for the live webcast of expert panelists featuring Former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin, Mayor Sheldon Day of Thomasville, Alabama, and Daniel Rosen, founding partner of Rhodium Group.
Mr. Rubin led the expert panel for a live, interactive “town hall” meeting. The topic of the night was the impact China’s investments in the United States are having on American workers, communities, and the economy. China has rapidly emerged as one of the fastest growing sources of foreign direct investment in the United States, bringing increasing numbers of Chinese companies into U.S communities and providing jobs to tens of thousands of Americans, as described in the May 2015 report “New Neighbors: Chinese Investment in the United States by Congressional District,” released by the National Committee and the Rhodium Group. While foreign direct investment is a vital component of U.S economic growth, employment and competitiveness, media coverage of a few high profile Chinese investments has focused on security and economic risks.
