From International to Interstates: Assessing the Opportunity for Chinese Participation in U.S. Infrastructure

From International to Interstates: Assessing the Opportunity for Chinese Participation in U.S. Infrastructure

Ratings: (0)|Views: 20|Likes:
The United States is poised to undertake the most significant expansion and modernization of its infrastructure since the 1950s. Unlike previous infrastructure booms, this new period is taking place in the context of significant pressure on federal, state, and local budgets, suggesting that substantial private capital will be necessary to finance the new infrastructure investments. This expansion is also taking place in a dramatically changed global economy that boasts new players in global trade and investment. The most important of these new players is China. As the United States’ second-largest goods trading partner—and with a large and growing pool of available capital—China is well positioned to participate in and benefit from U.S. infrastructure expansion and modernization.
