Registration is open for the 2018 SelectUSA Investment Summit. U.S. Ambassador to India Kenneth Juster will be leading the Indian delegation to this year’s Summit, which will be held from June 20 to 22, 2018, at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center near Washington, D.C. The Summit will connect global business leaders with all the U.S. states and their economic development organizations to facilitate foreign direct investment in the United States.
Ambassador Juster hosted a lunch earlier this month with a group of Indian business executives to discuss the United States as an attractive investment destination and to encourage their participation in the 2018 event. India is anticipated to send a strong delegation to the SelectUSA Summit, as they have done in previous years.
Since the first Summit was held in 2014, participants have announced over $71 billion in new investment projects in the United States, supporting thousands of jobs, expanding exports, and driving innovation through manufacturing, services, and increased research and development. The United States is the top foreign direct investment destination in the world, with a total of $3.7 trillion by the end of 2016.
