American Job Creation and Investment Promotion Reform Act of 2015: What's Next in China Market

American Job Creation and Investment Promotion Reform Act of 2015 has been introduced to extend the Regional Center program until September 30, 2020. The bill has proposed increasing the minimum investment in a Targeted Employment Area (TEA) to $800,000 and $1,200,000 for non-TEA investment!  There are many new proposals in the bill. What does the new bill mean to EB-5 regional center owners and project developers?  What impacts would be brought to Chinese investors market (85% investors from China)?  Here are just a few possible results of the new bill if it ever passes in the Congress:

1) Many TEAs in major metropolitan areas may disappear  
2) We will see more projects in rural areas and states
3) Declining number of investors from Chinese market in a short run
4) More interest in smaller projects in China
5) Larger projects may face more challenges in overseas investors market

To learn more about the latest impacts and trends in Chinese market, join us at the EB-5 China Market Roundtable on July 16!
