Next week, IIUSA will host its next three Global Banquet Series in Seoul, South Korea (Sep. 3), Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (Sept. 5), and Taipei, Taiwan (Sept. 10). We are looking forward to once again connecting our members with investors, agents and other service providers and to continuing the strong business development, networking and educational track record of these events.
Every year, IIUSA selects the destinations of our Global Banquet Series strategically based on what the EB-5 investor market statistics are telling us which is why Korea, Vietnam and Taiwan were no brainers. You can explore key insights from each market below:
IIUSA estimated that the combined I-526 filings from these three markets (Korea, Vietnam, and Taiwan) accounted for 37% of the market shares of the total I-526 filings among all countries other than China in FY2018. In addition, the growth of I-526 filings from Korea, Vietnam, and Taiwan was respectively 82%, 53%, and 48% between FY2017 and FY2018.
The follow charts presented the trends of I-526 filings from Korea, Vietnam, and Taiwan in the last ten years:
In addition, investors from Korea, Vietnam, and Taiwan contributed a total of $658 million in EB-5 capital investment in FY2018. The charts below illustrate the opportunities of raising EB-5 funding from Korea, Vietnam, and Taiwan since FY2009:
Qualified investors from these three markets saw an approval rate of their I-526 petition over 92% in FY2017, well above the average I-526 approval rates among the investors from other largest EB-5 markets. The average approval rate of Korean I-526 petitioners was 97%, the highest approval rate among the ten-biggest investor markets in FY2017.
In addition to an insightful panel discussion, IIUSA will also present additional EB-5 statistics for each investor market during the upcoming Global Banquet Series.
