IIUSA is pleased to announced that the The 2018 Q3-Q4 Issue of the Regional Center Business Journal ( “RCBJ”) is now available online!

This edition of the Journal highlights the value IIUSA continues to deliver to its members, with education modules, networking events, and data analysis. The Journal also includes reviews of current immigration adjudication issues relating to the EB-5 investor’s source and transfer of funds, and the structuring of the EB-5 investor’s exit from the investment vehicle. Not to miss an emerging topic, the Journal features articles on opportunity zone investments, the litigation contesting how EB-5 visas are counted, and what a minimum price increase could mean for the industry. The editorial committee for the Journal expects you will enjoy these articles just as much as we did in working with the authors.
