Top 10 Countries With Foreign Investment in America, but where’s China?

The Brookings Institution recently put out an infographic on the countries that invest directly in the United States and hire U.S. workers. The top 10 of these countries account for 73 percent of all U.S. jobs in foreign-owned enterprises (FOEs) in the U.S. It may come as a surprise that China is not in the top 10, which means Chinese FOEs account for less than 3 percent of such jobs in the U.S. Perhaps China wants to keep its manufacturing in China to bolster its own economy and industries.

The fact that many of the U.S. workers employed by the FOEs are in the manufacturing and advanced industries helps to foster these industries, and they provide well-paying jobs to Americans. See the Brookings infographic below for more details.
