Mega-Deals Give Cross-Border Investment Volume a Boost in H1 2018 - NREI
Foreign capital is continuing to pour into U.S. real estate. Transactions led by cross-border buyers jumped 27 percent during the first half of the year compared to overall investment sales that rose just 2 percent during that period, according to research firm Real Capital Analytics (RCA). Yet large-scale portfolio and entity-level deals are giving foreign-led transaction volume an added boost, while the sale of individual assets is declining.

Germany still attractive for US companies - Roland Berger
Both American companies in Germany and German companies in the US are upbeat about current business development. According to the findings of AmCham Germany's Transatlantic Business Barometer 2018, this trend is set to continue in the years ahead.

Nissan Hints at Building New U.S. Auto Plant Within Five Years - Bloomberg
“At some point, we may need it,” Jose Munoz, the chairman of Nissan North America, said Friday in reference to more U.S. production capacity. The addition would have to be a standalone new factory because the company’s existing plants in Tennessee and Mississippi are “maxed out,” Munoz said during an interview in Detroit.

When It Comes to Trade Whirlpool Tries To Have Its Cake And Eat It Too - Forbes
Samsung is building a washing machine factory in Newberry County, South Carolina. The plant is nearing completion, 250 workers have already been hired, sometime in 2018 the plant will have 500 workers producing washers and possibly other appliances, and eventually nearly 1000 workers will be employed there. LG is just beginning work on a plant in Clarkesville, Tennessee, so soon both major importers will be manufacturing some of their washing machines in the U.S., creating jobs for several thousand Americans.

If Whirlpool's foreign competitors are already in the process of moving some of their manufacturing footprint to the U.S., why is a trade action needed?

As Toyota and Mazda Scour the U.S. for a Plant, Mississippi Opens Its Arms - Bloomberg
As Toyota Motor Corp. and Mazda Motor Corp. begin to scour the U.S. for where to put the first auto assembly plant announced under President Donald Trump, one state looks like a frontrunner: Mississippi.

The Magnolia State already is home to a Corolla factory that’s been producing the compact car for almost six years. Toyota and Mazda plan to open a $1.6 billion new facility to produce that model, plus a Mazda crossover, starting in 2021.

Why are companies moving to the Southeast? They want proximity to their customers, German consul says - The Greenville News
For two years, Detlev Ruenger, consul general of the Federal Republican of Germany, wondered why companies kept putting a footprint in the Southeast...Wages are lower in the Southeast, he said. The time difference is better for companies calling back to their native Germany compared to locations on the West Coast, and, in particular, South Carolina is a right-to-work state, though it can be a concern to some given Germany’s strong union presence, he said.

Glass Half Full: The 2017 Foreign Direct Investment Confidence Index - A.T. Kearney
The United States tops the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) Confidence Index for the fifth year in a row. This streak ties with the longest prior run that the United States had at the top of the Index (ending in 2001), and likely reflects the enduring attractiveness of the US market in terms of sheer size and a relatively open regulatory environment for foreign investment. Investors may also be motivated by protectionist rhetoric, as FDI would give them a local footprint in the world’s largest economy. In addition, investors have a very bullish outlook for the North American economy—with the United States and Canada the two domestic economies about which investors are most optimistic this year compared with last year. It is thus no surprise that Canada rounds out the top five in this year’s Index.
