IIUSA’s trade mission to CIFIT is past approaching and this will be the second year in a row that IIUSA will partner with the American Chamber of Commerce South China to co-host the USA pavilion. Last year, over 115 IIUSA Members joined a combined U.S. delegation of over 300 delegates and 50 exhibitors. Delegates will have a chance to exhibit their projects, meet potential investor leads, other EB-5 stakeholders, and international business/government leaders and officials. Additionally, IIUSA is proud to partnership with the Fujian Exit-Entry Association (Xiamen is located in Fujian Province), which represent 35 migration agencies nationwide and have been instrumental to representing with event organizers.
Over the course of the four-day trade mission, delegates will participate in IIUSA-organized seminars and meetings to continue important dialogue among EB-5 stakeholders. On September 8th, IIUSA will lead an intimate meeting in which Chinese migration agents and IIUSA members (one representative per exhibitor) will examine pertinent issues such as securities laws and execution of the Entry/Exit Associations’ MOUs, USCIS policies, visa retrogression scenarios and the legislative outlook for 2014 and beyond. It is designed specifically to serve as an open forum and dialogue in a private setting.
Like last year, IIUSA will also host a bilingual EB-5 Seminar featuring speakers from IIUSA leadership, AmCham South China, AmCham Shanghai, Entry-Exit Associations, and guest of honor speakers from the highest level of business and government from the U.S. and China. Last year’s seminar, attended by hundreds, featured panels and case studies on U.S. immigration reform, USCIS policy, and EB-5 due diligence. This year’s seminar, hosted in partnership with Fujian Entry-Exit Association, will highlight the international relationships that have been forged over the past year and will also feature practical examples of EB-5 success resulting from effective cross-pacific partnerships. This seminar, in tandem with a first-class exhibiting experience and several exclusive networking receptions, provide the optimal platform for IIUSA members to engage and conduct business in the industry’s largest investor marketplace.
