More Russians Considering EB-5

The continuing decline in the business and political landscape in Russia is driving more and more affluent Russians to look for more promising options overseas. The bright side? At least it's become more easy to report instances of bribes--there's now an app for that! 55% of wealthy Russian business people noted corruption as the number one problem facing their businesses, up from 4% in 2009, according to this survey cited in the Moscow Times. We have noted a distinct increase in inquiries from investors from Russia and that region of the world, as investors there are increasingly making back-up plans for their families' futures.


U.S. Senate Approved the EB-5 Regional Center Pilot Program


On Aug 2, 2012, the US Senate reauthorized the EB-5 Regional Center Pilot Program for three years by unanimous consent. Most observers are optimistic that the House will pass the same bill soon. Although immigration issues have been contentious recently in the US, House members had pledged to renew the pilot program if the Senate approves it. In addition, with high unemployment and a struggling economy, the House would understand the economic importance of reauthorizing the EB-5 program.
Once the EB-5 Regional Center Pilot Program is approved by both the Senate and the House, it will be effective for another three years.

Is EB-5 becoming too popular for its own good?

Applications under the program have strongly rebounded and may exceed the annual quota next year. FY2012 EB-5 visa usage is estimated to be approximately 6,200, which is approximately double from the prior year. If this growth rate continues, the EB-5 visa quota of 10,000 visas will be exceeded next year for the first time for the entire existence of the program. (Download)

Stay tuned from updates from Ground Zero for the EB-5 market and the world's economic dynamo.

China and American higher education

As this article in the Washington Post recently hightlighted, the Chinese elite have an unsatiated appetite for American higher education (and judging by their choices, they have very high standards and are willing to pay for it). This phenomenon underlies the increasing interconnectedness between the US and Chinese economies, especially when compared to other BRIC countries. Moreover, it also reflects part of the drive behind the dominance of Chinese investors among EB-5 applicants. And as this article discusses [highlight Geib article], there are no signs of this trend abating in the near future.
