Investment is the lifeblood of economic growth. Foreign investment in the U.S. creates growth and jobs, but investment from China, the richest source of foreign capital, is in some quarters suspect and unwelcome.

U.S. foreign investment abroad is controversial too. It allows U.S. business to build new markets abroad. Some say this costs U.S. jobs, others argue that it creates jobs and improves wages and benefits for those working for U.S. multinationals.

The panelists for this session will explore the pros and cons of this very important element of U.S. commercial policy.

Lunch will be served.

This seminar series is designed to comply with all House and Senate rules for a widely attended event.
