On November 12, Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross announced that registration is open for the seventh annual SelectUSA Investment Summit (Summit), which will be held June 1-3, 2020, at the Washington Hilton in Washington, DC.

The Summit is the highest profile event to connect global investors and U.S. economic development organizations (EDOs) to facilitate business investment in the United States.

Secretary Ross stated, “America is where the world does business. It is not difficult to see why:  companies expanding here will find a culture of innovation, dedication to hard work, and a high quality of life. From its inception, it has been the job of SelectUSA to encourage companies to benefit from these unmatched and unparalleled advantages the U.S. has to offer.”

The previous six Investment Summits have yielded more than $32.5 billion in new investment in the United States, creating more than 38, 000 American jobs.  SelectUSA participants from the United Arab Emirates have invested $580 million in the United States.

The 2020 Investment Summit will build on the success of 2019, including a return of the SelectUSA Tech program, Industry Row, and SelectUSA’s dynamic mobile networking app.  The Department of Commerce anticipates another capacity audience of global companies and U.S. EDOs, along with a strong lineup of executive presenters.

The United States is currently home to more foreign direct investment than any other country in the world, with a total stock of more than $4.3 trillion at the end of 2018.
