Dr Derek Scissors, American Enterprise Institute



The rapid economic rise of China has brought with it tremendous wealth domestically but also the ability to seek out investment opportunities abroad. But what is China investing in, and where? How will geostrategic initiatives like ‘Belt and Road’ shape China’s investment decision-making and its relationship with other investor nation, in particular the United States?

Visiting Fulbright Specialist Dr Derek Scissors provides a US-perspective on China’s growing overseas investment drive and its implications for the future of the global international economy.

Derek M Scissors is a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), where he focuses on the Chinese and Indian economies and on US economic relations with Asia. He is concurrently chief economist of the China Beige Book.

Dr Scissors is the author of the_ China Global Investment Tracker_. In late 2008, he authored a series of papers that chronicled the end of pro-market Chinese reform and predicted economic stagnation in China as a result.

This event is free and open to the public.
