It is one of the most profound consequences of China’s growing wealth: Chinese investment in U.S. real estate has exploded, particularly in New York and California. Chinese nationals are now the biggest foreign buyers of American homes, purchasing homes valued at $93 billion in the past five years, including $28.6 billion in 2015 alone. Commercial property purchases have surged as well, to $8.5 billion last year, a 15-fold increase from 2010. And, at nearly $208 billion, China is the biggest foreign holder of U.S.-government-backed real estate bonds.

Join Asia Society for the launch of the first comprehensive report looking at Chinese investment into the U.S. real estate market. This breakfast discussion will provide an overview of the report and provide context for the broader debate, too often ideological and acrimonious, over U.S.-China trade and investment.
