EB5 Investors Magazine Volume 2 Issue 2 | Page 6

Publisher ’ s Note

Welcome to the Spring 2014 issue of EB5 Investors Magazine . It has been a full year since we launched the inaugural issue of the magazine and we have seen impressive growth in our community . As always , I would like to extend a huge thank you to our dedicated editorial board and the contributing authors who have helped build this EB-5 forum .

Since our first issue , the EB-5 program has continued to flourish and has become an important issue on Capitol Hill . This issue presents four key pieces of legislation , along with commentary from their sponsors . As part of this legislative feature , we are proud to publish an op-ed from Congressman Jared Polis , expressing his support of this valuable program .
The strength of this issue comes from an increased level of analysis offered by our contributing authors . Spurred by the shutdown of EB-5 ’ s Canadian competitor , contributing author Rohit Kapuria turns an eye to international investment immigration programs to analyze what drives investors ’ choices , while Christian Triantaphyllis and Catharine Yen carefully consider the intricacies of source of funds documentation .
In the effort of increasing transparency and building bridges with the largest international market for EB-5 , our editor interviewed Linda He of Wailian Overseas Consulting Group to discuss the migration agent ’ s role in the program . Turning the focus to developments here at home , we also highlight the Vermont EB-5 Regional Center as a model of public-private partnerships in the EB-5 industry .
Building upon the success of our Las Vegas EB-5 Conference , the EB5 Investors Magazine and EB5Investors . com team is hard at work planning our upcoming Southern California EB-5 Conference , to be held at the Balboa Bay Club & Resort in Newport Beach on July 21 , 2014 . U . S . Congressmen Bob Goodlatte and Darrell Issa , advocates for the EB-5 program , will be delivering keynote remarks .
I look forward to continuing to develop EB5 Investors Magazine as a platform for education , analysis , and innovating ideas through our second year and beyond .
Best regards ,
Ali Jahangiri
