The next entry in SelectUSA’s USG (U.S. Government) Webinar series (which focuses on specific member agencies and programs in the Interagency Investment Working Group, or “IIWG”) is set for September 11, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. EDT. The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) will provide an overview of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the United States in 2018, including highlights from BEA’s recent releases on new FDI and direct investment transactions and positions. These statistics provide information on trends in foreign direct investment by state, country, and industry that can help stakeholders make more informed decisions.
The IIWG was established to help coordinate activities across the many agencies that promote business investment and respond to specific issues that affect investment decisions. The IIWG is focused on continually improving federal investment programs and resources, bringing to bear the expertise and tools each agency has to offer. As Chair of the IIWG, SelectUSA works with these federal agencies to increase coordination and provide guidance and information to respond to specific and broad-reaching issues that affect business investment decisions.
