Yesterday, the 2023 SelectUSA Investment Summit came to a close, marking the largest Investment Summit in SelectUSA history, with 4,900 attendees spanning 83 international markets represented.
“This year’s record-setting SelectUSA Investment Summit has shown why the United States has remained the top destination for global investment for over a decade, and why the incredible investments we’re making under President Biden’s leadership, including through the CHIPS Act, Inflation Reduction Act and Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, will help keep us at the top for the next decade and beyond,” said U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo. “Thanks to these investments and the work of the SelectUSA team, we are building on the $248 billion in investments by foreign-owned companies since the start of the Biden-Harris Administration to create good jobs for American workers and tremendous growth opportunities for our country and foreign businesses.”
SelectUSA is grateful for the participation of President Biden and White House Senior Officials Natalie Quillian, John Podesta, Mitch Landrieu, and Lael Brainard; Secretaries Blinken, Cardona, Buttigieg; Deputy Secretary Turk, U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai, and Export-Import Bank Chair Reta Jo Lewis.
