us undersecretary of state: willing to help chinese investors avoid us political pullbacks
2010/9/8 0:00:00 Source:

us undersecretary of state robert hormats arrived in china on sept. 5th to attend the 2nd world investment forum (wif) and the 14th china international fair for investment & trade (cifit). taking this opportunity, hormats expects, like what the other 77 ministerial officials in attendance expect, to invite chinese investments in us.

"chinese enterprises are welcomed to invest in america,” hormats said in an exclusive interview in washington with a 21century economic report correspondent on sept. 3rd.

he was the 3rd us top official to “welcome chinese investment” publicly in the past month, following u.s. deputy treasury secretary and commerce assistant secretary, who echoed each other on different occasions.

not only officials of the federal government, but also us local governments welcome chinese investment warmheartedly. 16 southern american states are planning to come to china in a group to invite investment with a slogan of “south america, fertile land for investment”, unveiling the ever-growing efforts of the us government to attract chinese investment.
the us state department has announced that it will conduct dialogues between state governments and chinese investors, which will cover all around america with all state governments being encouraged to participate in.

as for the political interferences that chinese investors suffered occasionally in us, hormats  said frankly, “we have to admit that these investments sometimes encounter negative political interferences, and we should manage to reduce the restrictions imposed on chinese investors.”

he said that he was willing to help chinese investors avoid political pullbacks, and suggested that they consult state governors about the political risks.
"states governors are always good at reducing such pressures.” hormats said.
