Chicago Conversations—straight to the heart of the matter. In true Booth style, we actively seek the brightest thinkers, the most accomplished practitioners—innovators of every persuasion—and engage them in the cities where their industries thrive. Private equity in Mumbai. Technology in Seattle. Social enterprise in San Francisco.
Wherever the players are, is where you’ll find us. Looking at industry-specific topics and challenges through the lens of Chicago-style thinking is guaranteed to make for a lively, engaging, insightful conversation. A Chicago Conversation.Foreign Direct Investment
China has historically been a magnet for foreign direct investment with Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the first five months of 2014 still up 2.8 percent year-over-year, at $48.91 billion. But in recent months investments have softened in the world’s second-largest economy.
What are the factors affecting the locations for FDI on the mainland? Are there operating concerns for foreign firms that may be tightening the purse strings on investment? Is the regulatory environment stable and transparent enough to attract new investments? New on China’s horizon is Shanghai’s Free Trade Zone (FTZ). What is the FTZ and is it working?
Chicago Booth invites you to join us in Shanghai for a discussion with Booth alumni and financial experts who will share their expertise and perspective on the current environment. Hear their take on the future of foreign direct investment in Shanghai.Register >
