26/10/2013 14:44 (174 Day 05:56 minutes ago)

The FINANCIAL -- The pressing need for resources to modernize U.S. infrastructure is creating new opportunities for Chinese investors to act as providers of capital, goods, and services in areas such as civil engineering, architecture, construction, and contract and life-cycle management, shows the report by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

At a minimum, more than $8 trillion in new investment will likely be needed in U.S. transportation, energy, and wastewater and drinking water infrastructure from 2013 through 2030—totaling some $455 billion per year. However, making the most of these opportunities will require careful navigation of the legal, regulatory, and political landscape in the United States, according to U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

“The infrastructure investment opportunities available to Chinese businesses are significant, but achieving them will likely be a complex undertaking,” said Thomas J. Donohue, U.S. Chamber President and CEO.  “This report illustrates that identifying and pursuing potential investments, as well as anticipating challenges, will require planning and patience by Chinese parties and their U.S. counterparts,” Donohue continued.

The report also helps firms develop strategies to address likely challenges, including national security concerns, adverse reactions to foreign ownership, quality control and product safety, after-sale service, inadequate legal remedies, and legal and regulatory requirements governing outbound investment from China, according to U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

 

Additionally, the report provides concrete and pragmatic recommendations to Chinese parties and their U.S. counterparts contemplating participation in U.S. infrastructure that can lead to successful investment outcomes. Understanding U.S. national security concerns and the country’s regulatory landscape, prioritizing transparency and legal compliance, being mindful of how other global investments may impact investments in the United States, investing in U.S. operations, and developing relationships and a comprehensive strategy to manage risk will help potential investors take full advantage of valuable opportunities.
