EB5 Investors Magazine’s 2016 Investment & Immigration Expo at the Jing An Shangri-La hotel in Shanghai 

EB5 Investors Magazine hosted the 2016 Shanghai Investment & Immigration Expo from May 8-9 at the luxurious Jing An Shangri-La hotel in Shanghai, China. China Migration Group served as a co-host of the event. More than 300 EB-5 professionals joined over 100 leading Chinese migration agencies, along with prospective migration agents and wealth managers.

With this international expo, EB5 Investors sought to enhance communication and cooperation in the EB-5 industry. Ali Jahangiri, publisher and president of EB5 Investors Magazine, noted in his opening remarks that enhanced Sino-U.S. relations and communication is needed to further market transparency and band the industry together to advocate for much needed reforms. United States Senator Rand Paul and Rep. Jared Polis also expressed their support for the EB-5 program to attendees via video and Skype.

EB5 Investors Magazine was honored to welcome representatives and owners from many well-respected Chinese migration agencies in attendance. A special recognition was given to all Exit Entry presidents at the event, and it was a tremendous vote of confidence to host Shanghai Exit Entry Association president Zhang Han Qing among our event’s distinguished panel speakers.

The enlarging wait list for Chinese investors was a hot topic of discussion throughout the event. Professionals from Wolfsdorf Rosenthal LLP, Fragomen Worldwide, Foster LLP, Peng & Weber PLLC, and David Hirson & Partners LLP discussed the topic in detail. They also shared useful strategies for real cases, such as addressing migration issues for teenagers under 21, children who have aged out of eligibility for coverage under the EB-5 program, and examining alternative visa options like the L-1 visa.

The final day of the conference featured a speech by Austin Fragomen, the founder of Fragomen Worldwide.  Panels focused on advanced source of funds issues, and current hot topics like the importance of due diligence, especially in light of the Sept 30 sunset date for the EB-5 Regional Center Program and the Jay Peak SEC complaint.

The expo also offered agents information about investment immigration programs in countries other than the United States, including which programs are most popular, along with U.S. Asset Allocation best practices.
