The 4th annual Invest in America Summit takes place on February 25, 2019 from 12.00 PM to 4.00 PM at U.S. Chamber of Commerce, 1615 H Street NW in Washington, DC 20062 USA
Join global investors and U.S. stakeholders at the 4th Annual Invest in America! Summit held in partnership with the National Governors Association (NGA) and the State International Development Organizations (SIDO) to discuss the benefits and challenges of foreign investment in the U.S.
This event will facilitate new partnerships by convening private and public representatives from over 40 states and 50 countries with investors looking to participate in the enormous and diverse growth-oriented American economy.
Innovation, scale, stability and fair competition are the hallmarks of the American free enterprise system. They allow America’s economy to continually deliver growth and set the global trends across every sector. The proven rewards of our marketplace attract international investors to participate in an enormous and diverse growth-oriented economy. International investors’ role in our success is substantial; annual foreign direct investment (FDI) in the United States is nearly USD 300 billion.
At the U.S. Chamber, we prove every day that America’s business climate and economic stature are unsurpassed and welcome the international investors who share our desire to sustain a robust business environment because they too have a growing stake in the American economy.
Foreign investors recognize that American businesses welcome global competition in our market so long as it brings the best ideas, high integrity and solid financing from a global network committed to American entrepreneurship and long-term growth. International investment in the American economy will continue to drive our innovation, productivity, and economic growth.
