10th SelectUSA Investment Summit, Largest in History, Concludes

Yesterday, SelectUSA’s 10th Investment Summit came to a close, marking the largest Investment Summit in SelectUSA history, with over 5,000 attendees spanning 96 international markets and, for the first time, all 56 U.S. states and territories represented.

“This year’s SelectUSA Investment Summit demonstrated why the United States remains the top destination for foreign direct investment for twelve consecutive years,” said U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo. “The investments we’re seeing under President Biden’s Investing in America Agenda are a testament to the transformative work that we have championed since the start of the Biden-Harris Administration, and have allowed SelectUSA to drive nearly $100 billion in investments in critical supply chains – keeping us on track to retain the top slot for attracting foreign investments for years to come.”

SelectUSA is grateful for the participation of Secretary of State Antony Blinken; Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg; Acting Secretary of Labor Julie Su; Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks; Deputy Secretary of Energy David Turk; White House Senior Official Deputy National Security Advisor for International Economics Daleep Singh; and Export-Import Bank Chair Reta Jo Lewis.
