The U.S. has been left without Chinese investment – a ten-year anti-record

In 2019, China’s direct investment in the American economy fell to a record low level since the 2009 recession.

This was stated in a report by the National Committee on U.S.-Chinese Relations and the Rhodium Group consulting company, released on Monday, May 11.

Analysts have concluded that China’s direct investment in the U.S. has declined from $5.4 billion in 2018 to $5 billion in 2019. This is the lowest figure since 2009, which implies the purchase or investment in real estate or industry. At the same time, in the period from January to March of this year, when the world was engulfed by the coronavirus pandemic, China’s direct investments have disappeared altogether.

It is noteworthy that U.S. investment in China in 2019 increased last year by 1 billion – up to 14 billion dollars.
