China has invested US$7 billion in the United States so far this year, with another US$6 billion announced, Daniel Rosen, a senior US businessman and academic, told the Asia Society in Hong Kong on Friday. 

Rhodium Group, a consulting firm where Rosen is a partner, predicts that China's global investment will reach US$1 trillion to US$2 trillion by 2020. This is a relatively conservative projection compared with some more bullish forecasts which put the number as high as US$5 trillion. 

Rosen is a former White House advisor on international economic policy and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. He also serves on the board of America's National Committee for US-China Relations.

Rosen was speaking at the launch of a new Asia Society commissoned report on Chinese investment.

Rosen also spoke with the Post's Stephen Quinn about the strategy behind China's foreign investments.
