Interview by Global Atlanta

ATLANTA—Chinese investment in the U.S. market will continue as the global economy recovers. But that investment may be in a different form than some people might expect.
So says Guanming Fang, a corporate and securities attorney in Womble Carlyle’s Atlanta office and the leader of the firm’s China Initiative. Fang recently discussed Chinese investment in Georgia with Global Atlanta, an Atlanta-based business publication.
Fang says that Chinese investment will be more diverse than many people expect. While large factories will continue to get the headlines, Fang says that small Chinese companies are looking to enter the U.S. market through acquisitions and equity investments.
“The economic downturn I don't think had any impact on Chinese interest with the U.S. In fact, the flip side is true. They really look at the United States as an opportunity,” Fang tells Global Atlanta.
Fang is the author of a 43-page bilingual guide for Chinese companies looking to do business in Georgia. She also is the Chair of the Georgia China Alliance. Fang practices in Womble Carlyle’s Atlanta office.
