“‘I think China is really in good faith doing quite a bit,’ Haley said. ‘They are trying to put pressure on North Korea. What we've said is we want you to put more pressure on North Korea, whether that's with coal, whether that's with oil, whether that's with other sanctions ... I think China's been a really great friend of ours, and the way they came together with us to do the statement last week showed that we are united against wanting North Korea to stay away from doing any sort of nuclear threats.’”

Haley hailed China as “a friend” in a 2014 thank-you letter to Chinese Ambassador Cui Tiankai.



Haley added that she is “grateful” for China’s “contributions on the economic front.”


Chinese Ambassador Cui Tiankai “had written in his letter to Haley that China is ‘glad to see that the overall ties between China and South Carolina have been growing rapidly in recent years.… I look forward to continuing to work with you.’”

While serving as governor from 2011 to 2017, Haley recruited Chinese companies to her state and Chinese capital investments in South Carolina “more than doubled from $308 million in 2011 to nearly $670 million in 2015.”


While Haley was governor, Haley welcomed China investments in South Carolina. Haley brought the first Chinese-owned automaker into the U.S. In 2015, Volvo selected South Carolina for a $500 Million Assembly plant.


In a 2016 video message, Haley celebrated a deal that brought a business with ties to the Chinese Communist Party to her home state.


“‘It's a great day in South Carolina. I am so sorry I'm not there with you in person to celebrate what is a fantastic announcement by the Jushi Group,’ Haley said in a 2016 video message obtained by ABC News that was played at a signing ceremony in Tongxiang, Zhejiang Province, to celebrate a deal bringing a manufacturing plant owned by China Jushi, a partially state-owned fiberglass company, to South Carolina's Richland County.”


“‘We want to thank Chairman Zhang and everyone at the Jushi Group for allowing South Carolina to be the first location of your first U.S. manufacturing hub,’ Haley said in the video.”


In 2017, Haley said that it was “fine” for China to be “everywhere in the world.”


“HALEY: I think what you have to look at is, you know, China and Russia play very different roles. They both are getting involved across the world in all different pockets. Their tentacles are everywhere. Russia is doing it through elections and through military actions and through trying to get involved in conversations. China is doing it economically. If you look at their infrastructure, they are everywhere in the world now and they want to continue to do that so that they have a stronghold. And what we need to do is say that's fine, if they're going to continue to do that, they're also going to have to be accountable for the things that they are responsible for. And we do think North Korea is one of those that they need to be held accountable for.”


Haley gave 197 acres of free land to a Chinese company run by Communist Party officials.


“According to the contract between the county and China Jushi, a key part of the deal was the company’s receiving 197 acres of land, valued at $4.9 million. The company would have been required to pay back part of the land’s value if it did not invest an expected amount of money or create an expected number of jobs.”


Haley Opposed Tariffs On Goods Made In China


In 2014, Haley wanted the U.S. Commerce Department to lower a tariff on tires made in China by Giti Tire, which was in the middle of building a $560 million plant in South Carolina. The tariffs were initially imposed to compete with hefty subsidies Chinese manufacturers receive from the Communist Party.


Haley Said Chinese Workers Can Help Show Americans How To Work Hard


Haley said Chinese workers can help show Americans how to work hard.


“They work with passion and they work with urgency - like there is no time to waste and they want it all done yesterday… And we're saying: let's get that passion again. And that's why I think the Chinese investments are good for us. Because it reminds us of what this energy feels like. They can remind us that we need to focus on that again.”


During Haley’s Tenure As Governor Of South Carolina, The State Partnered With A CCP-Linked Group To Send 20 Students To A Beijing Summer Camp


While Haley was governor of South Carolina, the state partnered with a group led by the Chinese communist government to send more than a dozen students to a Beijing summer camp.


“‘The South Carolina Department of Education is pleased to partner with the Beijing International Education Exchange (BIEE),’ a March 2015 memorandum on the state’s education department website reads. ‘The international division of the Beijing Municipal Education Commission is delighted to announce that invitations will be extended to 20 secondary school students from across South Carolina to attend the 5th Beijing International Student Summer Camp this year.’”


“On behalf of BIEE, we invite all high schools in South Carolina to recommend 20 secondary students, between the ages of 14 to 18, to participate in the program. The camp will take place from July 14 – 23, 2015 in Beijing.”


In 2007, Haley Attended The World Economic Forum (WEF) In Dalian, China.



According to a Haley press release from 2007, she attended the WEF in Dalian, China. South Carolina was the only state in the nation invited to attend the event, and Haley called it a “a rare opportunity for us to expand economic development prospects here in Lexington County and across our state.”
