The two organizations will co-host the U.S. Exhibit Pavilion, collaborate on media events, and bring together natural international partners from across sectors to strengthen the bonds of economic friendship between China and the U.S. - including through the EB-5 Regional Center Program

CIFIT is the culmination of what has already been a productive year of collaboration in 2013 between the organizations - providing the ideal platform for our respective members to pursue opportunity.

The Association to Invest In the USA (IIUSA), the national not-for-profit trade association for the EB-5 Regional Center Program (the "Program") industry (whose Regional Center members make up approximately 95% of the capital raised through the Program), is partnering with the American Chamber of Commerce in South China (AmCham South China) to lead the U.S. delegation to the 17th Annual China International Fair for Investment & Trade (CIFIT) in Xiamen, China this September 6-10, 2013. The delegation will be co-lead by the Presidents of both organizations: K. David Andersson, IIUSA, and Harley Seyedin, AmCham South China.

"The IIUSA/AmCham South China lead delegation to CIFIT is an exciting new opportunity for IIUSA members to offer their services to EB-5's largest investor market," said K. David Andersson, IIUSA President, "Under the leadership of our two organizations, there is reason for all IIUSA members - whether Regional Centers, projects managers, law firms, and any other industry service providers - to consider making this trip. IIUSA is honored to have such an established and dynamic partner is AmCham South China for our education and advocacy efforts in China. CIFIT is the culmination of what has already been a productive year of collaboration in 2013 between the organizations - providing the ideal platform for our respective members to pursue opportunity."

In addition to several media events, international cross-sector meetings/networking, and the U.S. Pavilion, IIUSA will be hosting an EB-5 Seminar on 9/9 for all interested in the Program. Invitations have been extended to a far reaching group of Program stakeholders in China to the seminar, in addition to inviting people throughout the event. Therefore, IIUSA and AmCham South China are advising companies considering the trip to sign up by 6/15, before the price for exhibiting goes up a few days later. Also, if enough companies commit by the 6/15 deadline, IIUSA can exercise an option for an additional 15 exhibit spaces in addition to the 18 currently available to members. The more exhibitors attend, the stronger the U.S. delegation will be in attracting outbound foreign direct investment from China.

Several companies have already signed up for the delegation, including: Clark County Regional Center (as a delegation sponsor), Civitas Capital Management, Jay Peak Resort, Green Card Fund, EB5 Global, NES Financial, and U.S. Immigration Investment Center. IIUSA has a detailed schedule and all other information you need to sign up today at its event registration page. According to AmCham South China's statistics from last year's Fair, CIFIT is where US$298 million in investment is forge every minute, twenty-four hours a day for three consecutive days. Last year, some 17,000 businesses from China and around the world attended representing 130 countries. Over 2,000 private business executives from China, all seeking overseas investment opportunities, will be in attendance – in addition to the 17,000+ regular attendees.

This exciting opportunity, at a low price of $3,850 per exhibit booth for a limited time, is another example of IIUSA's efforts to bring low cost, high reward opportunities to its members.
