Kai Wang discusses Chinese investments in Hawaii Business

Kai Wang, partner and chair of our Greater China Practice Group, shared her perspective on Chinese investments in a Hawaii Business article, “Hawaii's China Wave Smaller Than Expected." From a tightening of regulations by the Chinese government, to increased scrutiny by the U.S. government, to competition from other investment destinations there are many reasons why Hawaii has seen less investments from China than projected. Wang points out that Hawaii’s development regulations, coupled with high costs of land and labor, are major factors unique to Hawaii that affect Hawaii’s struggle to attract Chinese investors.
