According to Jennifer Zimdahl Galt, the U.S. Consul General in Guangzhou, China has become the world’s fastest growing investor in the U.S. In 2013, Chinese investments in the U.S. hit a record of more than US$14 billion; double that of the 2012 level.
Starting in 2014, the U.S. stepped up its efforts to entice Chinese to invest. Between April 15 and April 18, "Select America," a U.S. Commerce Department program, for the first time reached out to four cities in China’s Pearl River Delta region: Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Shunde, and Guangzhou.
