WASHINGTON, D.C. – April 18, 2019 (PDF) – Invest in the USA (IIUSA), the national industry trade association for the EB-5 Regional Center Program, announced yesterday that General David H. Petraeus, USA (Retired) will deliver the keynote address at the 12th Annual IIUSA EB-5 Advocacy Conference to be hosted in Washington, D.C. on May 5-7.
General Petraeus will be joined by his former colleague Ramin Asgard, now of Mona Shah & Associates Global (MSA Global), for a fire-side chat to discuss the EB-5 program’s impact on economic development and job creation. Petraeus will also share his thoughts on how IIUSA can enhance its work with our nation’s veterans to ensure more employment opportunities are available to those who served in uniform.
“We are deeply honored General Petraeus will be joining IIUSA’s economic development leaders from across the country,” said First Pathway Partners Chairman and IIUSA President Robert Kraft. “General Patraeus’ decades of leadership and experience with America’s veterans is exemplary and we are eager to learn more from him to support our new initiative to hire veterans.”
“Earlier this year, IIUSA established a new membership-led committee focused entirely on how the EB-5 program can better support our nation’s veterans. I am especially thankful for our member MSA Global’s leadership in that regard. The Committee’s goal is to dramatically expand IIUSA’s efforts to encourage and incentivize EB-5 industry stakeholders to recruit, employ, and retain veterans in local and regional jobs across America,” said IIUSA Executive Director Aaron Grau.
The IIUSA EB-5 Advocacy Conference is the premiere EB-5 industry event dedicated to education, business development and of course advocacy. To register for the event please visit https://iiusa.org/dc2019.
