San Francisco is a primary destination for foreign direct investment from Asia. With Asian Americans representing 33 percent of the population, more than 75 consulates, numerous foreign trade offices, and Sister City relationships with Osaka, Manila, Ho Chi Minh City, Seoul, Bangalore and Shanghai, San Francisco is uniquely positioned to leverage deep economic, cultural and academic ties with Asia.
SFAsia builds on the momentum of ChinaSF to tap opportunities in Southeast Asia, Japan, Korea and India. Created as a nonprofit, public-private partnership between the Mayor’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD) and the San Francisco Center for Economic Development (SFCED), SFAsia works to spur economic growth in the San Francisco Bay Area by paving the way for Asian companies to locate, invest and grow in the city. SFAsia also serves as a bilateral bridge for San Francisco-based companies looking to expand in Asia.
